Subject:   Memory fault - core dumped
Message-ID:  <>

Next in thread | Raw E-Mail | Index | Archive | Help
I have been working on compiling an application (ported from Linux) on FreeBSD (for 
those who are interested, it is the CERN physics libraries).  In any case, I have 
been able to compile all the relevant files and link them together (without errors) 
to produce an executable.  When I try to run it, it grinds away for a while, and 
then leaves me with the message "Memory fault - core dumped" and a core dump file. 

I am running on a 486DX-33 with 8MB of RAM, and I am also running X.  Do I just not 
have enough physical memory?   The Linux version claimed to run in 8MB with X. How 
would I go about debugging this further, and is there any way to read and understand 
the core dump?

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.....
