Hello, > If you run without the -D does it still segfault? of course, I added -D just after I found it segfaults so it has some debugging output. > How much memory does your system have? 256MB + 1GB swap, when doing it, at least 40MB of memory is free and 900MB of swap space is free too. > Run after "ulimit -c unlimited", then using gdb and the resulting core > file can you send trace information? it does not dump core even after this command, I really don't know why.
