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

Hi William,

Unless Michael James says otherwise, I think you'll need to compile OpenMotif 2.3.3(version 2.3.2 is flawed with respect to Gempak...2.3.1 is O.K. if you have it).

We run Gempak6.6.0 on workstations running on Mandriva 2010.2(64 bit), and I haven't seen the segmentation errors you describe. Garp does crash when you try opening NIDS data or you clear/reset some graphics, which have station overlays. However, since Garp isn't supported anymore, and you can do similar things using Nmap, it's no big deal for us.

OpenMotif comes as an RPM in the Mandriva-64 2011 Powerpack distribution:

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 GARP.

    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

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