Hello Everyone,

Not sure if this is already discussed here.

I am facing segmentation fault when running benchmark_rx in narrowband
examples. It seems like those example used to work fine before, but now
they are having these issues.

Segmentation fault (core dumped)
==============================================

What is confusing is that the segmentation fault comes when the
transmitter
is initialized.

On the other hand when I run gmsk it seems to work fine.

This could be an issue related to the constellation_receiver QA issue
a few people have seen lately. I can't replicate it on my end, but
Nathan can and is helping to track it down.

That was my first thought as well. At this point we should probably file
this in the bug tracker.

Manu,

Can you send me a backtrace, your processor type, and compiler
information?

Hi,

Thanks for the responses.

Output to "lscpu", "cat /proc/cpuinfor", "gcc -v", "python" can be found
in
the link below:

http://home.iitb.ac.in/~manu.ts/cpu-info

I am still figuring out how to get the backtrace.

$ gdb python # this brings up gdb prompt:

then it will run, probably crash. then enter

Also hoping that it would solve the issue, I rebuilt GNU Radio from
todays
pull. But that didn't help.
