Post subject:  Compiling Mumps V1 on FreeBSD x64: Malloc causes segfault?

Disclaimer: I am not a C programmer.

I compiled Mumps V1 on FreeBSD x64. It compiles fine, but most operations cause a segmentation fault. Is it just my computer?

Code:
[sakura@pcbsd-2457 /usr/home/sakura/Downloads/mumps]$ uname -a
FreeBSD pcbsd-2457 9.0-RC3 FreeBSD 9.0-RC3 #2: Mon Dec  5 15:02:57 PST 2011     root@build9x64.pcbsd.org:/usr/obj/builds/amd64/pcbsd-build90/fbsd-source/9.0/sys/GENERIC  amd64


Here are the gdb details:

It crashes at the malloc line. I should have memory, otherwise, I won't be able to type this from FreeBSD.
Looks like IPC Shared Memory is created okay:

From the look of your ipcs, you may have some improperly shut down mumps processes; this can cause this problem. Reboot FreeBSD and try again to see if the problem exists.

Thank you for responding Mr. Newman.

I tried it again another time and the same thing happened (a couple of weeks later; the computer was definitely restarted).

I wrote a tiny C program that does a malloc, and it executed fine.

I also found out that MV1 does a few allocations before this, and they work fine. So I am not sure why this specific one fails.

How does the pre-compiled package I supplied for FreeBSD go?
(http://sourceforge.net/projects/mumps/f ... z/download)

What version of FreeBSD are you using?

Mr. Newman,

I will get back to you on installing the pre-compiled package.

I am using FreeBSD 9.0 RC3.

The precompiled package works fine!

Hmmmm,

I can't get a version compiled on FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE to work either - same problem.
The version compiled on ver 8 works fine on 9. For now, don't compile on 9.
