Re: [gembud] GEMPAK 6.6.0 Segmentation Faults (Mandriva 2011.0 64-bit)


OpenMotif comes as an RPM in the Mandriva-64 2011 Powerpack distribution:
        Version: 2.3.2-1mdv2010.0
        Currently installed version: 2.3.2-1mdv2010.0
        Group: Development/C
        Architecture: x86_64
        Size: 25079 KB
        Medium: None (installed)

Do you recommend that we build a /usr/local/ install of it?

I've seen this happen with NPROGS when OpenMotif is installed as a pre-compiled 
RPM.  Is that the case here or did you build OpenMotif from source?

We've been able to install GEMPAK 6.6.0 on our Mandriva 2011.0 (64-bit)  
machines and have had good results with the command line programs (e.g,. 
SFLIST) as well as the graphics scripts (e.g., SFMAP).

However, with the GUIs, we've had nothing but segmentation faults for NMAP2 and 

Sample for NMAP2:
/home/temp/gempaktest]% nmap2
Finished reading tables...
Resource File:  /usr/local/GEMPAK-6.6.0_GNU64/resource/Nmap
(empty gray GUI comes on the screen very briefly and then…)
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

Other Sample for GARP
temp@sky:/home/temp/gempaktest]% garp
G A R P - v2.1 starting...
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
(no flash of a GUI at all)

We get good results with NSHARP.  NWX runs but does not access any of the data.

We have  Open Motif 2.3.2 and the gcc/gfortran 4.6.1 compilers

Our Makefile seems to be pointing at the correct libraries and includes….

Has anyone else had luck building with Mandriva and recent versions of GEMPAK?
