Ubuntu :: Pidgin Floating Point Exception?

Feb 18, 2010

pidgin started crashing today for no apparent reason. It just shutdowns. No freezing or anything, it just goes away, disappears. From what I can say, there's no specific trigger for this, it can happen after 2 or 10 min after I started it. Once it even shutdown right 10seconds. I tried to run it from the terminal. When I do that, the only thing that appears before closing is

Floating point exception Anyone has an idea of what it can be? I made no upgrade to pidgin or libpurple recently. I made however an upgrade today of the following packages

Ubuntu :: Gnome-terminal: Floating Point Exception?

May 27, 2011

This is the first time I post a question on these forums My problem is as follows: I can't start gnome-terminal from the Applications->Accesories menu or from the Alt+F2 application launcher. I get a "Starting Terminal" in the task-bar that disappears after a few seconds and no terminal. I'm pretty sure there is something I did, but I can't really figure out what it is.

The things I've tried so far:

1. I used synaptic to remove and reinstall gnome-terminal. That didn't work
2. Started Xterm and tried to run "gnome-terminal". This is where it gets weird for me:

a. running the command as normal user I get a "Floating point exception" error and obviosly no terminal
b. when I do "sudo gnome-terminal" and enter the root password I get, as expected, a root terminal. I could live with that, but it's not ideal.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: DVD9 To DVD5 Floating Point Exception?

Oct 14, 2010

I have been trying to convert a DVD9 to DVD5 using the following steps

1)Rip the DVD title(s) to harddisk with DVD:RIP in a project folder. This created VOB files of the the movie and the soundtrack you picked.

2)Concatenate (merge) the VOB files into one by running in a console: cat *.vob > movie.vob

3)demutliplex movie.vob and get the M2V and AC3 files out of there. tcextract -i movie.vob -t vob -x mpeg2 > movie.m2v

4)tcextract -i movie.vob -a 0 -x ac3 -t vob > movie.ac3

5)I then shrank the movie.m2v tcrequant -i movie.m2v -o shrinked.m2v -f 1.5

OpenSUSE Install :: Floating Point Exception After Kde 4.6 Install?

Feb 1, 2011

why installing kde 4.6 from factory repos went wrong ? i used zypper dup with oss, non-oss and update repos for 11.3 to reset to default install and boot went ok :

this goes with the following package versions:
$ kded4 --version
Qt�: 4.6.3
KDE�: 4.4.4 (KDE 4.4.4) "release 3"
i'm using this x86 kernel :


my problem : when i add factory repos (core and extra) for kde install of packages from yast is ok when switching system packages to these. but after reboot i have floating point exceptions and a black screen and can' t boot anymore. the only way out i found so far is to zypper dup to go back to kde 4.4.4

CentOS 5 :: Cron Errors - Segmentation Fault, Floating Point Exception

Dec 7, 2009

I'm running CentOS 5.4.In the last three days I've started to get various cron errors:

/bin/sh: line 1: 7066 Segmentation fault /usr/local/scripts/
/bin/sh: line 1: 4822 Floating point exceptionsudo -u mobile getmail --quiet
Can't load '/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi/auto/RRDs/'


Then yesterday I rebooted, and all the other errors seemed to have disappeared for now, but, I am now getting:

/bin/sh: line 1: 23600 Segmentation fault sudo -u mobile getmail --quiet

I have setup cron to call getmail once every 3 minutes, and I get this error about 4-6 times an hour.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: WinFF Won't Start Up Floating Point Exeption?

Mar 17, 2011

Just updated WinFF to version 1.3.2-1.1. Since then it won't start up any more due to a floating point exeption. System: OpenSUSE 11.4 (x86) + KDE 4.6.0 Debug info:

WARNING] Out of OEM specific VK codes, changing to unassigned
[WARNING] Out of unassigned VK codes, assigning $FF
ERROR in LCL: TLRSObjectReader.SkipValue unknown valuetype
Creating gdb catchable error:


I had the same error with earlier versions of WinFF in earlier versions of OpenSUSE. Then I could fix it by changing the KDE window styles. The error also occurs with the WinFF qt-version.

Programming :: Operator For Floating Point Comparison?

May 10, 2011

I know it is wrong to use the "==" operator to compare the equality of two floating point numbers. Logically it would seem that if the "==" operator is not usable for floating point comparison, then the "<=" operator would also not be usable. Is this true? The lack of google search results on this topic made me think that it must be true. If that is true, then is it true that the only way to compare floats with <= or >= is with something like the code below? Code: bool smaller_than_or_equal(float a, float b) {

if ( fabs(a-b) < EPSILON){return true;}
else if (a < b) {return true;}
else {return false;}

} I think this is a general question, but if specifics are necessary, I am using the C++ language to code at the moment.

Programming :: IEEE Floating Point Format?

Jun 5, 2011

I'm reading a book on assembly, and it talks a bit about the IEEE floating point format.


To summarize, the following steps are used to convert a decimal number to IEEE single format: 1. The leading bit of the floating point format is 0 for a positive number and 1 for a negative number. 2. Write the unsigned number in binary. 3. Write the binary number in binary scientific notation f23.f22 ... f0 2^e, where f23 = 1. There are 24 fraction bits, but it is not necessary to write trailing 0's. 4. Add a bias of 127 to the exponent e. This sum, in binary form, is the next 8 bits of the answer, following the sign bit. (Adding a bias is an alternative to storing the exponent as a signed number.) 5. The fraction bits f22f21 ... f0 form the last 23 bits of the floating point number. The leading bit f23 (which is always 1) is dropped.

Hardware :: Mounting SD Card - Floating Point Error?

Feb 17, 2009

I put an SD card in a reader, got all the right signs from the kernel (SCSI device: sda; write-through; etc.)including its 2GB size.

When I try to mount /dev/sda1 I get 'floating point exception' as a response, and it won't mount.

I've never had that message returned from mount, and I can't find any reference to it.

Software :: Make G++ Compile In Floating Point Support?

Apr 14, 2011

One of those odd things I learned the hard way is that if you are writing a shared object (library/.so) and any programs that will link to that library uses floating point numbers, the library must be compiled as if it uses floating point numbers. What that really means is, you need to declare at least one float in the source for the library or when the caller connects and tries to run code in the library, the process aborts.I end up putting a float pi (3.1415); in the code and getting an unused variable warning all the time. There has to be a simpler way, some flag to pass to g++ that says, "include floating point support even if you don't really need to."

p.s. Gosh I hope I remembered this correctly. I encountered this problem doing a multi-platform build for Windows and Linux. This COULD be a VC++ problem that I just carried into Linux by using the same source.

My main problem right now is doing floating point arithmetic within a bash script, with variables.Right now I have a folder called "myExamples" with a script called "run_example" that runs with no issues.I plan to(1) create many folders inside [myExamples], that are named [example10] [example11]...each containing an identical copy of (run_example),(2) modify Line 172 of each copy of (run_example) one copy, it would be 3.00, the next copy would have 3.05, etc. (This part doesn't work!)How can use the available calculator bc code to do floating point operations?My code is below -

SUSE / Novell :: Install A D-Link Access Point On Suse 11.0?

Sep 16, 2010

how to install a D-Link Access Point on Suse 11.0 or steer me toward documentation that will do that? I configured the device on XP following instruction from this forum and the AP configured perfectly.The AP is plugged directly into the network port on the computer. It *should* function correctly without a router. I tried a restart and Suse has no idea it's there. The computer is currently configured for a wired connection which needs to be changed. The computer itself is going to be used as a small home storage server.

Programming :: Asm 64bit Registers - "64-bit Linux Allows Up To Fourteen Parameters To Be Transferred In Registers (6 Integer And 8 Floating Point)."

Mar 28, 2010

I have tried to learn how 64bit asm (nasm in my case) works and found, among the many disparate pieces of info on the net, a few vague inferences that floating point registers can be used for other purposes than what they are intended for, example: "64-bit Linux allows up to fourteen parameters to be transferred in registers (6 integer and 8 floating point)." This would be fantastic for string operations/manipulation (I have never used asm for floating-point operations), can anyone shed a bit of light?

OpenSUSE Install :: Suse 10.2 Want To Update To 11.2?

I tried to download the Suse 11.2 DVD to do an install. When I went to do the install it failed cause it was corrupt.Not to big of deal, I had an older version of 10.2.Now that I have 10.2 installed, is there a way for me to upgrade this to 11.2 without downloading the Install DVD.I've been away from messing with Linux for a few months so I'm pretty darn rusty. I'll run Linux for awhile and when I get frustrated I'll move back to Windows. I'll mess with that for a few months and then go back to Linux...

OpenSUSE :: Suse 11.4: Scribus 1.4.0 RC1 Buggy -> Update?

Apr 9, 2011

someone decided for whatever reason to ship Suse 11.4 with a broken version of Scribus. Not only is the application missing in the KDE-Menu after installation (had to add it manually) but it is crashing frequently. Whenever one adds new text in a Textbox (which will NOT be formated with the specified default font but the first in the list) and then immediately changes the font without first leaving the input-focus of that box: Segfault / signal 11. I understand that there is a RC2 out by now and the specific error seems to be fixed by that.

Now my question is: After having decided to ship sUSE 11.4 with a RC: Will further RCs and maybe the final release of scribus be shipped by the OpenSuse Update? Or does the user have to manually install a working version of that software?
