Floating Point Exception Error

Hi,

I am running Red Hat Linux 7.2 (Enigma) and on running the 'top' cmd, I get the following error message:

2:16pm up 273 days, 20:55, 4 users, load average: 0.04, 0.01, 0.00
197 processes: 196 sleeping, 1 running, 0 zombie, 0 stopped
Floating point exception

This looks like a bug to me. Does anybody know how I can resolve this?

Rgds,
D.

Re: Floating Point Exception Error

options:
1) Upgrade the latest I think is RHEL 5.
2) debug the core or try to compile a more recent version of top.

If it is not dumping core do "ulimit -c unlimited" and run top again.

Typically this is a divide by zero.
