Runtime error with LAPAACK solver DGELS

Runtime error with LAPAACK solver DGELS

I am getting a runtime error (segmentation fault) when I call the LAPACK solver 'DGELS' from my Fortran program. I used a small example program that I found on the net to set up the problem and make the call to DGELS.

Did I use the correct fortran command line options? Did I link with the MKL libraries properly? Are there any compiler bugs that would cause this problem? I also set the stacksize to unlimited (e.g., limit stacksize unlimited).

Any help resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Problem specifics

Compiler command:
ifort myprog.f -L$MKLPATH -lmkl_lapack -lmkl_ia32 -lguide -lpthread

where MKLPATH=/opt/intel/mkl721/lib/32

Runtime execution:
[bwilson@spalding ~/lapack]$ ./a.out
forrtl: severe (174): SIGSEGV, segmentation fault occurred

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

Since you say your problem is small, it may not matter whether you build your test application as a 32-bit application, but it's still curious that you did that on a 64-bit system.
ifort 9.0.023 or 024 should be more reliable than 021, but you haven't given any information which would tell if that is relevant.
You should get better information on the location of the crash by using -g option, with and without optimization.


Thanks for the reply. I recompiled with the -g option and used the debugger with the following the results included at the bottom. It gave a warning about an unrecognized programming langauge. Sorry, but I do not why this occured. Does this help to shed any light on the problem?

Information: An type was presented during execution of the previous command. For complete type information on this symbol, recompilation of the program will be necessary. Consult the compiler man pages for details on producing full symbol table information using the '-g' (and '-gall' for cxx) flags.

It does look like it would be worth a problem report on your account. Please fill out all the information including both ifort and MKL versions.

Thanks. I will submit an inquiry.
