ok...A few things have me worried. Has anyone had any problems with
their rh6.2. I've got back two problems which really have me worried.
One is when I was compiling xemacs.......
gcc: Internal compiler error: program cc1 got fatal signal 11
make: *** [regex.o] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/xemacs-21.1.12/lib-src'
make: *** [lib-src] Error 2
The other problem got me a bit more worried. I compiled fftw (fast
fourier transform stuff) and when I ran the checks (make
check......compares results on your machine with a look up table), I got
back computational errors:
./fftw_test -x 100 -r 0
This test will run for 100 iterations.
Please wait (while a large software vendor in Seattle takes over the
Testing correctness for n = 4032...FATAL ERROR: test_out_of_place: wrong
fftw: failed test.
make: *** [fftw-tests] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/fftw-2.1.3/tests'
make: *** [check-recursive] Error 1
[root at athos fftw-2.1.3]#
!!! This means it did the bloody sum wrong! So what do you think I
should blame. I'm using an AMD K-6 500. Am I being presumptuous to thing
there is a maths co-processor? (so I'm really grasping at straws
here...but I'm confident that fftw hasn't got computational bugs).
a very unhappy g.......
