Just installed gnu prolog on Mac OS X 10.4 but it is not working. When I go:

% ./gprolog 
Bus error

Anyone have any ideas?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

How did you install it? Maybe you should try a packaged version such as Fink's. – Matthew Flaschen May 30 '10 at 15:14

A bus error is similar to a segmentation fault. This probably indicates a bug in gprolog, one of its libraries, or your compiler.

That is what I was thinking too. Any fixes? – sixtyfootersdude May 30 '10 at 15:22
@sixty, no, but I would try the Fink version. – Matthew Flaschen May 30 '10 at 15:33
