Default Segmentation Fault on kernel 2.6.8-1.521

I resently installed kernel 2.6.8-1.521 on a Fedora Core 2 machine. I get a segmentation fault when trying to run the prime client (both the mprime and sprime version).

It works fine on the previous kernel - 2.6.7-1.494.2.2.

The client seg faults before it even can bring up the menu.

PrimeMonster, by any chance can you download the sources and debug?

If not, I'll have to install Fedora on a machine here.

Same here with 2.6.8.1-common on a SuSe machine.

Otherwise than that, it is possible to go to the menu, though. Have you tried
mprime -m ? It does work for me. But when I chose "contact server" in the menu, the program sigfaults.

Ditto that here. For now I'll probably just revert to an older kernel because running the latest kernel isn't that important to me, but hopefully this isn't too difficult a fix to make soon.

Try the latest version at http://mersenne.org/freesoft.htm

I downloaded and installed Fedora core 2, updated the kernel, recompiled
and relinked and it just works. I don't know what the problem was.

The updated version does indeed work. Back to the newer kernels for me!

I'm having a problem with prp3 on a 2.6 kernel, is this likely the same problem? Gentoo Linux in case it matters.
