Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2003-01-03 21:32:29 EST
Is a core dump file generated?

Comment 3 Eric Schwartz 2003-01-06 12:17:52 EST
No core dump file is generated.
Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2003-05-19 03:56:55 EDT
Does it run ok for you in a tty ("xemacs -nw")?
Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2003-11-18 20:23:26 EST
Nope.
Comment 6 Jens Petersen 2003-11-19 03:31:12 EST
(Btw, just in case it wasn't obvious, the solution is just to rebuild
the srpm.)
Comment 7 Ville Skyttä 2003-11-19 14:14:29 EST
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 08:10:37 EDT
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 11:28:45 EDT
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,

if the solution does not work for you.
