[Letsencrypt-devel] Bug#805231: python-letsencrypt: letsencrypt is not usable with grsecurity enabled kernels

Package: python-letsencrypt
Version: 0.0.0.dev20151114-1
Severity: normal

I received a report from jvoisin on freenode#letsencrypt-dev that letsencrypt
causes SIGSEGV on execution for kernels with are grsecurity enabled.

The error that he saw was:
Nov 15 21:31:14 sd-42696 kernel: letsencrypt[27728]: segfault at 0 ip
00007427a642699b sp 00007d651508f2a8 error 6 in

I suspect this is a problem with some underlying library, but am opening this
issue to track it here until I can
be sure one way or the other.
