Hello, Thanks for all the suggestions on getting past the earlier error messages I posted to the group. I still have not successfully installed Allegro 4.3 and have the following error messages: (After a screen detailing the install options the following appears:) Removing ucl, static.0 and nihroutines.0 /tmp/ccaoo252.i:1: numerical constant with no digits /tmp/ccaoo252.i:1: numerical constant with no digits /tmp/ccaoo252.i:1: invalid #line /tmp/ccaoo252.i:41: numerical constant with no digits /tmp/ccaoo252.i:41: numerical constant with no digits /tmp/ccaoo252.i:41: invalid #line /tmp/ccaoo252.i:72: numerical constant with no digits /tmp/ccaoo252.i:72: numerical constant with no digits /tmp/ccaoo252.i:72: invalid #line /tmp/ccaoo252.i:206: numerical constant with no digits /tmp/ccaoo252.i:206: numerical constant with no digits /tmp/ccaoo252.i:206: invalid #line /tmp/ccaoo252.i:230: numerical constant with no digits /tmp/ccaoo252.i:230: numerical constant with no digits /tmp/ccaoo252.i:230: invalid #line /tmp/ccaoo252.i:249: numerical constant with no digits /tmp/ccaoo252.i:249: numerical constant with no digits /tmp/ccaoo252.i:249: invalid #line /tmp/ccaoo252.i:251: numerical constant with no digits /tmp/ccaoo252.i:251: numerical constant with no digits /tmp/ccaoo252.i:251: invalid #line /tmp/ccaoo252.i:268: numerical constant with no digits /tmp/ccaoo252.i:268: numerical constant with no digits /tmp/ccaoo252.i:268: invalid #line /tmp/ccaoo252.i:289: numerical constant with no digits /tmp/ccaoo252.i:289: numerical constant with no digits /tmp/ccaoo252.i:289: invalid #line /tmp/ccaoo252.i:308: parse error at null character /tmp/ccaoo252.i:308: virtual memory exhausted make: *** {cl_hih} Error 1 I am running Linux 2.0.27 (Slackware) on a 486 PC with 32 MB of RAM and gcc 2.7.2.1. (Note on the virtual memory being exhausted at end of errors, df -k . reveals > 16 MB of space for /tmp). I have written to the Franz bug-list but don't really expect any reply since the Linux port is unsupported. Any suggestions on what to try next?

Steve, Sorry, I should have mentioned that in my post. No, the prebuilt binary terminates with a segmentation fault.

I don't recall exactly what it was but something changed, the fix was to upgrade some library (could have been libc but don't quote me on that). I was also having some other problems with bad version skew on my system so I just down loaded the newest distribution and reinstalled, so I cannot tell you exactly what to do to fix your problem. However, I have not had any problems with the new system... except for some real stupid stuff Red Hat did to the default networking setup. but that is a topic for another newsgroup. The long and the short of it is that this sounds like a GCC version skew problem. You mentioned elsewhere that the prebuilt image seg faults, this may also be the result of the image using libraries which are out of sync with what it expects. So, if my ever so clumsy estimation of your problem is correct if you upgrade the correct library all of your problems may disappear. :-) Good luck, Eric
