I am running Debian (sarge) running kernel 2.6.11-1-686-smp, but not
using the Debian packages. My instance identifies itself as:
NOAO PC-IRAF Revision 2.12.2a-EXPORT Wed Jul 14 20:45:34 MST 2004
This is the EXPORT version of PC-IRAF V2.12 supporting most PC systems.
I seem to get similar errors with a much simpler task:
PANIC in `/usr/local/iraf/irafbin/noao.bin.linux/x_artdata.e': Memory has been corrupted
It seems like just about anything I do causes this memory error. I'd
hazard a guess that the previous mkobject problem was not data related.
