Crashing R in OS X

Here's an interesting one...

So I've recently been working on converting an mx script to OpenMx (file attached). I might be doing something I shouldn't, but the script caused R on my Mac to close w/out explanation or warning. Everything goes fine until I hit "mxRun." I ran this under Windows XP and got the following error:

> EstModel Running CoupledModel
Error in mxRun(CoupledModel) :
BLAS/LAPACK routine 'DGEMM ' gave error code -13

So the first problem is this error code, the second is that R did not give this warning in OS X but rather terminated the program. I used source() to get OpenMx, so I'm still on version 708.

This looks like a similar problem to the one above. Could you post the R script you were running?

Thanks!

Thanks for the

Thanks for the submission.

Looks like the error is being thrown somewhere in the quadratic product calculation. I've created an issue ticket (http://openmx.psyc.virginia.edu/issue/2009/08/dgemm-error-quadratic-calculation) for it, and am digging in on fixing it.

With your permission, I'll add this script to the test bank so that we can catch it if we ever hit this error again.

Thanks!

The quadratic product

The quadratic product calculation error has been fixed in revision 746. It should be available in the next binary release.

I'm fine with adding the script to the test bank. How can I get revision 746, so that I can continue testing?
