Segfault during make libgraph(graphics.h) Debian


I'm trying to install the graphics.h lib on linux however I'm getting a segmentation fault during make.

Tried both versions from
http://download.savannah.gnu.org/releases/libgraph/

./configure goes well...

but make returns

Segmentation fault

All dmesg returns is
Code:
[ 2768.637077] make[6795]: segfault at dc0000 ip 0000000000dc0000 sp 00007fff3da40988 error 14

Tried following some tut
Did a core dump...
ulimit -c 1024

Then I did gdb make ./core

Code:
This GDB was configured as "x86_64-linux-gnu".
For bug reporting instructions, please see:

Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.

Not sure if make is valid here since it's a script


Googled much...

Any ideas on how to find the component causing the Segfault?

Hi, welcome to LQ!

I'm afraid isolating the component causing this will navigate us
away from this being a Linux question. Considering the random
tools and/or locations you're seeing problems with segfaults in
it's most likely a) a bad RAM chip, or b) a dying memory controller
on your motherboard.

Unless of course your tool-chain is all home-brew rather than supplied
by your distro. But surely you would have mentioned that ...


Cheers,
Tink

Agreed ..
Libgraph (-1.0.2) will compile OK with any default gcc, versions 3.3.6 .. 4.7.1.

Thank you very much for your replies.

Guess component wasn't the right word here.
What i meant was what part of the code.

I'd be rather astound if it was caused by dying hardware.

I'm not having any trouble running any programs.
Everything else compiles well, also make does work for other programs.
Compiling anything with Code::Blocks works smoothly as well.


Just checked the version I have -->gcc (Debian 4.4.5-8) 4.4.5
But I don't think it's the compiler either.


Just to recap what I did
I'm new to the matter maybe I did something wrong
Code:
1)downloaded the tar
2) created a directory in my home folder 
3)extracted libgraph-1.0.2 using tar -xvzf 
4)typed ./configure
makefile was created
5)typed make 
Result Segfault
What exactly does make do here?
From what I understood
linux doesn't know how to display the functions in graphics.h
It needs to do so using SDL
So libgraph configures the system to use SDL to display the graphics.h functions.

make takes a file replaces some parts of it and re-compiles it?
or the output of make handles the displaying of graphics using SDL.?


Could it some library libgraph depends on that is causing the trouble?

Debian Squeeze.

Prerequisites, libgraph : # apt-get install \
gcc g++ libsdl1.2-dev libsdl-image1.2-dev libjpeg62-dev libpng12-dev guile-1.8-dev

The above command will also update the packages to the latest available versions.

I've managed to get GLUT working

Should be able to do what I want as well, even tho it seems a lot more complicated.

I've written a program in C which outputs a set of points.
And was looking for some easy cross-platform way to display that set of points on a x y axis
like this
http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/sas/teach/grlog/graph.gif

I'd like to embed it in a gui afterwards
Like this

Can't be too hard to do that can it

I thought graphics.h would be suited for that
Been reading around a bit today and some people say that it's outdated anyways.


Too bad I wasn't able to understand what caused the Segfault.

Anyways thanks for the help guys Linux is still is new territory for me, I hope to get it under my belt someday ^^
