[Rd] c-c problem when R compiled with pthread
Fri, 22 Feb 2002 12:59:35 -0500
I've run into this problem that when I hit c-c to interrupt a command or
computation, the R session just ends.
The info: R-1.4.1 compiled from source on Linux Mandrake 7.1. Dual P-3 Xeon
with 2GB ram.
1. Compiled R with link to Intel Math Kernel Library (for fast BLAS), which
needed pthread. C-c at the R prompt ends the R session.
2. Compiled R with link to (threaded) ATLAS, which again needed pthread.
Same thing happened. However,
I tried running this version of R under ESS, and c-c c-c works fine.
Pressing the "interrupt" button in the R gnome interface also worked fine.
3. Compiled R without link to MKL or ATLAS. C-c works as expected.
This seems to suggest pthread as the problem. Can anyone offer
