Hi everyone,

I have some problem installing nonmem on a PC with Linux (redhat 7.2).
Please let me know if anyone can help.

I basically use setup script using g77 -O -ff99 options as suggested by
other Linux users.  The problem does not appear to be discussed in the users
group before.

After installation, I tried CONTROL3, CONTROL5 and CONTROL7. There is an
error msg at the end of the run- 'Segmentation fault', the nonmem run stop
after 0 iteration as indicated in the output file.

I found 2 error warnings only in /nm/emsgs.txt.  I was able to fix one
error, but not the other error- [Reference to unimplemented intrinsic
'SCALE' (assumed EXTERNAL)].  The SCALE.f seems to compiled with no problem.
I tried to add SCALE.o in nonmem.exe compiling step. It made no difference.
There seems to be some bugs in my Linux system.  I tried to download all the
update from redhat.  But, it also made no difference.

Any tip you might have would be greatly appreciated.


Best regards,

Hi Sam-  If using the MS-DOS formated disks when installing NONMEM, the
text files that make up the Fortran source code use have a different
end-of-line format than Linux/UNIX is expecting.  This isn't usually a
problem when compiling the code, but can be when using the control files
upon execution of NONMEM.  The solution is to pass the text files through
the Linux/UNIX formating program dos2unix (use:  dos2unix filename).  This
will put the correct end-of-line formating in the file and should solve
your problem.  BTW, unix2dos does just the opposite--converts Linux/UNIX
style text formating into MS-DOS style formating.  --Larry

Hi Larry:

Thanks, the unix conversion was done prior to the installation. If this
problem is only unique to my Linux system, I may need to install a debugger
to find the bug.
