puppet master/agent 2.6.3 keeps dying in daemon mode

Hello, I've installed ruby, facter and puppet from source (versions below) and I'm experiencing some trouble:

1) puppetmasterd needs to be run many times before actually starting in daemon mode. Then once it does it crashes as soon as a client tries to connect

2) puppetd never starts as a daemon.

I never get any error logs from the information above and the command complete successfully. The --verbose and --debug switches don't add anything to the log (syslog).

Also, I can run both master and agent in --no-daemonize mode and they work just fine.
