 Linux 1.3.54 + Top = Floating Point Exception
I run 386dx40 AMD with 8 meg of ram. I just recently upgraded from Linux
1.3.47 to 1.3.54, suddenly top does this :

  1:00am  up 1 min,  1 user,  load average: 0.50, 0.16, 0.05
19 processes: 18 sleeping, 1 running, 0 zombie, 0 stopped
CPU states:  5.6% user, 15.5% system, 21.2% nice, 78.8% idle
Mem:      0K av,     0K used,     0K free,     0K shrd,     0K buff
Swap:     0K av,     0K used,     0K free

Floating point exception
redrum:~#

        Any indications why? Or is there already a patch for this?

Run `cat /proc/meminfo'.  There es a new entry in the `Mem:' line.
Simply get the ps sources and add another %*s in the scanf calls.

Well I have solved my own problem, and maybe alot of other peoples,
upgrade the following package:
        sunsite.unc.edu:/pub/Linux/Incoming/procps-0.97-1.3.53.tar.gz

Lessons learned:
        * Read manual, and mailing lists.
        * If you continuely upgrade some package, upgrade some of the
others as well, once in a while.
