floating point exception

Post by Ryszard Tana » Sat, 11 May 1996 04:00:00



Hi all!

I have a problem with Linux. I have Slackware 3.0 installed on 486
system, and when I tried install Octave (ELF version -- binary
distrribution ) I get, after starting octave, a message: floating point
exception.
Can anybody explain what can cause this problem?
Thanks for any indications, Ryszard

1. Floating Point Exception

Hi All !

Please, can somebody help me.

I have the following problem. I have access to two Linux/Alphas
PC21164-P7.  But I am not able to do something really useful with
them, since I got "Floating Point Exceptions" and the console report
something like:

arithmetic trap at 0000000120090248: 11 0000000800000000

It is not that the applications I am running are bad, since they are
well established and runs on other platforms quite well.

There is one more thing that bothers me and that is that console reports

messages like, whenever I run some program (for example compiler or some

other programs):

<sc 208(11ffffbba,3e8,64)>

And I don't know what this messages means.

I am running kernel 2.0.37 and Debian/GNU Linux slink 2.1.

Does anybody have the same problems or knows how to resolve them ????

Thanks,
Tone
