I am trying to port a working Mathlink module from Windows NT 4.0 SP3 to RedhatLinux5.0. Once the module compiled I tried to launch it from a shell and it immediately core-dumped. So I went back to the prebuilt Mathlink eanmple: /usr/local/mathematica/AddOns/MathLink/DevelopersKits/Linux/PrebuiltExamples/addtwo and ran it in a shell. Everything worked fine, I was able to link with a notebook and use the function AddTwo. Then I tried to build the examples in: /usr/local/mathematica/AddOns/MathLink/DevelopersKits/Linux/MathLinkExamples/ I changed to that directory and ran 'make' to generate the executable: addtwo. When I attempted to run this executable from a shell I got an immediate core-dump. I next tried the same thing on a machine running RedHat 4.2 (i.e. rebuild addtwo and run it from a shell). It works fine! It seems, therefore, that the problem is the result of a change between Redhat4.2 and Redhat5.0. Perhaps the change from using libc to glibc? Has anybody else encountered this problem? Any suggestions will be welcome. Until I can get the examples to work I'm stuck on my original problem.
