hello my problem with mathematica 5.0 on a Suse Linux 9.0 (kernel 2.4.21) is that it isn't able to plot exponential numbers in the axis. E.g. the command Plot[x,{x,0,10^10}] crashes mathematica and the only way from stopping it, is the kill command. If I do the command Plot[x,{x,0,10^10},Axes->False] it shows the plot. I've read about a patch, but don't know where to find. Regards Marcel
