This won't be of any help, but will at least verify that someone else is
experiencing the same issue. I used the exact settings you had below using
the attached file and had the same segmentation fault on both a 32-bit
CentOS running 5.11.1 and 64-bit RH Linux running 5.11.4. I also tried to
use the example settings at
and got the same segmentation fault. This file worked fine in IDV.

Subject: [gembud] Segmentation Fault in gpnexr2 (and gpnexr2_gf) in version
The problem is that gpnexr2 is producing a seg fault when I try to create an
image using the attached radar file.
The settings are:
MAP = 10=100:100:100//2 + 8 + 9
GAREA = 39.9;-75.5;41;-73.4
PROJ = RAD
RADFIL = KDIX_20090615_1940
LATLON = 0
PANEL = 0
TITLE = 1
TEXT = .8/2/////HW
CLEAR = YES
DEVICE = xw
LUTFIL = /home/user/wxscripts/lev2rad.tbl
IMCBAR = 31/V/LL/.005;.05/.85;.01|.7/1/1/hw
TILT = .5
RADPARM = dz
RADTIM = current
IDV is able to process the radar file fine.
The seg fault occurs with both 5.11.1 and 5.11.4, but I don't know about
version 5.11.4 of gpnexr2_gf since those executables haven't been compiled.
A related query involves the white blotches that sometimes appear on the
radar plots of Level II data with gpnexr2. How do we get rid of those?
A final query is that it doesn't seem like the resolution has increased to
250m in 5.11.4. How does one go about achieving the increased resolution?
