Hi Geetha, This may be useful to you.
http://article.gmane.org/gmane.network.simulator.isi/2766/match=segmentation +fault Hi, there is no "the" solution to *segmentation* *fault*s. From what I've seen on this list and in practice, there can be several causes: 1. you deleted a resource from within TCL, causing pointers in C++ to point to memory regions no longer in use. Fix: be careful what you delete in TCL. 2. you added or modified the ns2 source code: a. there is a dependency problem and parts of your source have not been recompiled. fix: type "make clean" and "make" to make ultimately sure that all code is within sync with each other b. your additions are the cause of the memory violation. fix: fix! how to find the location of your error? a. first you have to convince your shell to produce a coredump when a *segmentation* *fault* occurs. Usually this is done with the command "ulimit -c 100000" which sets the limit of coredumps to really huge so that they are allways produced. b. add "-g" to the CFLAGS in the Makefile (and Makefile.in to make sure your change is not removed when you ./configure ns2). This flag says that debugging code is compiled into the executable. c. make clean & make to have the debugging code properly compiled in. When a *segmentation* *fault* occurs, type: "gdb -c core", then in gdb tell it that you want to load symbols from the ns executable with "file ns", and then you can inspect the stack ("bt"), select a stack frame ("select 0") and inspect the values of variables in that stack frame. Use the online help of gdb to get familiar with it. Good luck debugging! 3. May be you are accessing the wrong memory location while declaring your data structures like linked list, arrays etc Regards Mubashir Husain Rehmani 2008/9/12 Geetha <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> > > Dear Ns-Users, > > Now when I simulate the TORA routing protocol I get the error as > "segmentation fault core dumped" but when I run the program > "test-suite-wireless-lan-tora.tcl" it executes correctly.
