From: Jan Medlock <medlock-debian <at> turboshower.net>
Subject: Bug#448530: python-numpy: numpy/atlas3-sse2 segfault
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.debian.devel.bugs.general
Date: Monday 29th October 2007 20:01:22 UTC (over 9 years ago)
Package: python-numpy
Version: 1:1.0.3-1
Severity: normal


Hi there,
I get strange segfaults with numpy/atlas3-sse2 under python 2.4.

The attached script and pickled matrix illustrate the segfault.  The
pickled matrix ('phi.p') was generated by scipy.dump and seems to be
not broken itself.  The script loads this matrix and tries to perform
a matrix-vector multiplication, leading to the segfault when using
atlas3-sse2.

Using strace led me to investigate atlas3 (trace attached).  The
script does not segfault when using atlas3-sse, atlas3-base, or
atlas3-3dnow (the latter on a different machine).

$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/atlas/sse2 python test.py
About to mulitply
Segmentation fault

$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/atlas/sse python test.py
About to mulitply
Multiplied


I'm happy to give any help I can in tracking down this issue.
