Error description

  • Customer reported on their SUSE 10 SP3 system the Traveler
    server will not start.  After some investigation found a
    Floating Point Exception coming from the Linux library
    /lib/ld-linux.so.2
    
    The problem appears to be a bug in some of the older gcc runtime
    libraries however there does appear to be a compiler
    option that will workaround the issue.  This APAR will be used
    to implement and test using the gcc compiler option.
    

Local fix

  • NA
    

Problem summary

  • Some older Linux systems with older compiler versions could
    experience a floating point operation exception when trying to
    start the IBM Traveler server. The floating point exception is a
    compatibility issue between the older compiler on the Linux OS
    and the newer version used to build IBM Traveler for Linux.
    This is not a common issue as most systems tested have an up to
    date compiler level.
    

Problem conclusion

  • There is a compile option that allows greater compatibility with
    older Linux compiler versions.  The IBM Traveler server was
    updated to use this for Linux builds when supporting older
    operating systems.
    

Temporary fix
