Dear Forum,

The subject line says most: Has anyone compiled (and run) GAP
successfully on a DEC alpha machine? I can compile it successfully, but
the garbage collector will crash.

This is just to report that I've had the same experience. I compiled
GAP with the bsd option. But when it comes to running it, it does not
work: long integer arithmetics gives nonsense, and any attempt of
doing anything results in a crash ("Memory fault").

I might add that a colleague of mine has had similar problems with a C
program of his: it compiles, but then crashes immediately.
