Trap divide error

Hi Sifus,

I am having the following alerts on several of my machines, was wondering what could be the cause of it? Thanks.

Running RHEL5

kernel: nmupm[22030] trap divide error rip:804a37e rsp:ffe20c64 error:0

Re: Trap divide error

The process "nmupm" (here with PID 22030) tried to divide a floating-point number by zero and did not catch the error condition (the SIGFPE signal) properly.

This is a bug in the "nmupm" program.

Hi, thanks for your reply.

Is there a way that I can fix this, or at least stop it from logging to the 'messages' file.

Typically IEEE traps are disabled and this is really an integer divide by 0.
