I just recently installed Red Hat Linux 4.2 on my computer, and it's my
first experience with Linux. I got Linux so that I could easily port
programs back and forth from my SGI at work.
I wrote a fairly simple program at home that reads and writes RGB
files. I used g++ ( gcc version 18.104.22.168 ) to compile it. I got a
segmentation fault the first time I ran it. I am accustomed to hunting
down segmentation faults using 'dbx,' but I suppose gdb is similar. So
I used gdb and got the following output:
brett: /home/brett/mbuffer>gdb test

I compiled the program with the -gstabs+ option.
Anybody know what could be going wrong here? Please reply by e-mail if
