Default 'Kernel too old' for prime 22.9 on linux 2.0.38

Hello,

I have downloaded the files 'mprime229.tgz' and 'sprime229.tgz' for linux. The dynamically linked version of mprime exits with a segmentation fault. I am not surprised at it but the statically linked says:
"FATAL: kernel too old
IOT trap/Abort".
My kernel version is 2.0.38 and I know it is very very old! But, unfortunately, I do not have the root password and, currently, the dynamically linked 21.4.2 version of mprime runs perfectly. Do I have to recompile prime from the source?

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Christophe

Are their any Linux gurus out there with suggestions on how to build mprime with staticly linked libraries that can run on older kernels???

Default kernel too old

I am running a 2.0.39 kernel and compiled a 2.0.40 (the current top patch level) just this evening. Both seem to run the client fine, except that it should be noted I am only doing factoring, due to slow machines. I'll install RH 5.2, patch the kernel and install on another machine that more resembles whatever you are using, if you will tell me a bit more about your setup. Then perhaps the problem's solution will become clear.

Hello,

My distribution is Slackware 3.5 with libc 2.0.7. The PC is a Pentium 200 Mhz.
If you need more information, tell me.

Thanks,

Christophe

George,

you could try to build mprime with the compat libraries, but I am unsure about how far back-level they will provide support for.

What about compile one with that old kernel?

Default compile it

I just happened to have a P200 here for repair. A minimal installation of RH 5.2 was put on and a 2.0.40 kernel compiled to suit the hardware. (Okay, I admit it; I'm pretty anal about doing these things, not least because I barely know what I'm about.) It runs fine. The statically linked, pre-compiled 21.4 binary is running well, to all appearances, though factoring only. I would suggest running it and, failing that, compile on your own system.

Please try 22.9 on your 200 MHz machine. Version 21.4 and 22.9 were built on different versions of Linux.
