Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2003-01-04 02:32:29 UTC
Is a core dump file generated?

Comment 3 Eric Schwartz 2003-01-06 17:17:52 UTC
No core dump file is generated.

Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2003-05-19 07:56:55 UTC
Does it run ok for you in a tty ("xemacs -nw")?

Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2003-11-19 01:23:26 UTC

Comment 6 Jens Petersen 2003-11-19 08:31:12 UTC
(Btw, just in case it wasn't obvious, the solution is just to rebuild
the srpm.)

Comment 7 Ville Skyttä 2003-11-19 19:14:29 UTC
Just a far-fetched hunch, but probably the core file isn't created
because of core files being disabled by default (on RHL that is, I
don't know about RHEL).  "ulimit -c unlimited" could help...

Comment 11 Jens Petersen 2004-05-18 12:10:37 UTC
We now have a workaround for this for ia64 (linking without
-dynamic-export) so this should be easy to fix for the next
updates release. :)

Comment 13 John Flanagan 2004-08-18 15:28:45 UTC
An errata has been issued which should help the problem 
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being 
closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information
on the solution and/or where to find the updated files, 
please follow the link below. You may reopen this bug report 
if the solution does not work for you.
