Hi PARSEC users,

I am facing a runtime error while executing x264 in a Solaris/SPARC
environment for the PARSEC v2.0. This is a bus error that did not happen
with the patched version of the previous PARSEC release.

Unfortunately, I do not have more information than the console output
(that you can find at the end of the email), but, I would like to know
if any of you also found the same issue or this is a problem in my

Additional information about my environment are that the OS is Solaris
10 and I am compiling with the GNU gcc 4.2.3 and the latest version of
the binutils.

Thank you very much,

Javier Lira
