I just installed freeciv from source using make && make install on a
twin dual core opteron. (Tyan K8SE mobo (s2892 mobo), dual 285 cpus, 2Gb
Reg.ECC RAM, NVidia 6800GT], running x86-64 SL5 (RHEL5).
The program runs as far as the end of the first turn. When the button to
complete the turn is pushed, or one attempts to build a city - the
program crashes, and goes back to the start page.
The error message is that the session has lost contact with the server.
The program runs fine on a Tyan K8E (s2865 mobo) running an opteron 180
cpu, and using the i386 version of SL5.
