|Thank you for your replies to my previous two messages.
In short, is it know what are the minimum linux kernel
requirements to run dvipng-0.6. I have discovered, that our
server is running kernel 2.4.2-2 (very old), somewhat contrary to what
our system people have mentioned. Since the semester have started at
Rutgers, I favor a conservative upgrade to RedHat 7.3, rather than a
switch to 9.0. Are there known problems with dvipng on 7.3?
All this is related to the core dumps I have mentioned in the two
plevious messages. They are rather regular and often occur first in the
course/html/tmp/ directory, and later in the system/cgi/cgi-scrips one.
On 3-4 occasions a host of temp files corresponging to a "get hard
copy" operation appear practically simultaneously with the core (I
include an example at the end of this message). There is a distinction
between our first two sets - #1 does not have 2D graphs created on the
fly, and #2 does have two of those. It seems that only downloads of the
seccond type cause the core dumps (I am still convinced that it is the
particular use of png2eps, gif2eps). We have updated the pmntops
(netpbm) to version 9-24 which seems to be the latest, but problems
persist with both with and without the -nosetpage switch.
Thank you again,
Yavor Markov, Rutgers.
