Hi,

I am trying to install sac by compiling its source code in a 64-bit redhat linux machine.
after changing the X11 library to its 64-bit library, the installation seems fine.
but when I run sac, there is "Segmentation fault" :<

anyone has any experience or knows what's really going on ?

Thanks!

    As noted before, SAC is not supported on 64 bit platforms.

    However, a number of different people, I believe, have had success
    compiling SAC on 64 bit machines by forcing it to be 32 bit using
    compiler options. Try compiling with something like -m32 when using
    gcc.

    In its current form, SAC will not run properly in 64 bit mode due to
    different type sizes on 32 and 64 bit machines.

    Cheers,
