After upgrading to 2.0.29 from 1.2.13 Everything works fine except the
"top" program and vmstat which both get floating point exception errors.
I have had this on two systems and the kernel is compiled with Math
emulation and one system has the coprocessor and the other doesn't, but
get the same errors.

What other libraries need to be upgraded for this to work properly? Any
suggestions would be greatly appreciated. (all other applications test
out fine).

Thanks for your help.

Reread the CHANGES file in the Documentation directory of your Linux kernel
source tree.  You'll find that you need to upgrade your procps utilities
(top, ps, etc.) in order for them to work properly.

  Get a newer version of procps that can deal with the proc interface

  (and the real top -- not the procps top -- works fine as well.)
