LO88392: IBM TRAVELER 9.0.1.X MAY NOT START ON OLDER SUSE 10 SYSTEMS.
Direct links to fixes
Closed as program error.
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.
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.
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.
This fix is included in IBM Traveler 188.8.131.52 and will be included in all future releases. For the latest available maintenance information see this technote: http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg24019529
