command top getting error


hi,
when I do a command named top the result displayed not exactly like just what I want, here is the result :
11:22am up 421 days, 15:23, 2 users, load average: 0.17, 0.11, 0.08
126 processes: 125 sleeping, 1 running, 0 zombie, 0 stopped
Floating point exception

Does anyone know about this error ?

thanks in advance,

Hery

That means that your "top" command is broken probably from some library mismatch (glibc?)
Try to reinstall it using your distro's package manager and see if it works. You can also use:
Code:
strace -o somefile top
and take a look in the file "somefile" created to see if you find where the problem is.

Regards
