Getting a "Floating point exception". no start
« on: February 26, 2003, 11:31:36 pm »

After trying the upgrade path, it was not working, I ereased the games/bin/uqm and games/lib/uqm/ and did a full binary install, now I am getting a floating point exeption when trying to install.  Could I have done somthing wrong with the install?

I assume this is linux
What distro are you using?

Can you paste everything you see on stdout here? (i.e. how far does it get).

You could also try downloading the source .tgz, and doing 'build.sh uqm'

Then copy the resulting binary into the games/lib/uqm directory.

Alos, try running uqm directly from games/lib/uqm (i.e. run from that directory, and use the binary in that directory instead of the script in games/bin/uqm)

Since we (the developers) haven't been able to duplicate this problem, we need as much information as you can provide for us to try and fix it.

my distro is Redhat 7.1
The only message I get is "Floating point execption"

I got that error along with a script error message so I tried running the binary and got "Floating point execption" all by itself.

I figured I might have detrius from a previus install, v0.1 worked fine execept for the bugs, so I downloaded the full install and removed the old install files and upgrade files but I have the same error

could stuff laying around from previous installs do this?

P.S. I quite enjoyed your install script it does exactly what it said it does, it was a real pleasure to run.

Not my install script.  Meep-eep gets all the credit for that (if you ever use the Windows Installer, and like it, THEN you can praise me) Smiley
It is very unlikely that the problem is related to old data lying around.  More likely something in the build is incompatible with the libraries yu have installed.

I believe your best bet will be to download the src and build a 'good' binary from that.  The content you have should be fine (and even if it wasn't you should not be getting an FP exception)

If even on building  abinary from scratch, you still get the exception, building a debug build and running it through gdb could provide us with valuable information.

I had this problem too when I tried the static binary:

[david@milliways uqm]$ ./uqm
Floating point exception
[david@milliways uqm]$ rpm -q XFree86-libs glibc
XFree86-libs-4.2.0-8
glibc-2.2.4-13
[david@milliways uqm]$ gdb uqm

Program received signal SIGFPE, Arithmetic exception.
0x08121954 in _dl_lookup_versioned_symbol ()
(gdb)


The source version worked fine for me.
The game is wonderful! A big thank you to everyone who worked on it.
