 Unaligned access error

When i start the Legato Networker "nsradmin" or "nwrecover"
my computers, the following error messages are printed on
my screen:

(more the 50 times)
...
Unaligned access pid=7834 <networker> va=0x14014c3a4 pc=0x1200ea878
ra=0x1200e9698 inst=0xb6c40004
Unaligned access pid=7834 <networker> va=0x14014c3ac pc=0x1200ea8b0
ra=0x1200e9698 inst=0xb4b50008
...
but the networker works fine.
This messages comes on all stations with 24 bit x-servers.
But on 8-bit color x-servers starts without error messages.
My configuration:
AlphaStation 600 5/333
4D50T Graphics adapter
Digital Unix 4.0E
Firmware 5.7

or

AlphaStation XP900 EV 6 466 MHz
4D10T (Elsa Gloria Synergy 8 MB)
TRU64 5.0A
Firmware 5.7

 Unaligned access error

It is a bug in the user program.  The program is performing an 8 byte
store (both instructions, 0xb4b50008 and 0xb6c40004 are STQs) to a non 8
byte aligned address (va).  The kernel traps this error and fixes it but
you lose performance - however, the program will work correctly.  You
can disable the messages, see the man page for uac(1).

You didn't mention the version of Networker...

Anyway, until you get the Networker updates that eliminates those messages
(they're not *error* messages - just informational), type:

        man uac

to learn how to turn them off.

 Unaligned access error

Well, yes sort of.  The vendor compiled his application on "newer"
hardware than you are running on and left the compiler in "default"
mode.  Yes performance will hurt some, but it will run.
