Segmentation fault on declaring variable while using mkl for matrix vector multiplication

Hello ,
I am trying to use mkl library to do matrix vector multiplication .When I am declaring a variable char t3 ,its giving segmentation fault
and when I am commenting it ,its running fine.Please help me debug this problem
I have bolded the line and wrote a comment on it to identify it.

The error that I am getting is as follows:Output :

./matrixVectorMultMKL2.o 10 10 1
Intializing.. size = 10
Performing multiplication 100 times..
Segmentation fault

Please help!!!

Which OS, C compiler, what version of MKL, and what were the compiler options used?

With Intel C 11.1.073 (IA32 or intel64) on SuSE Linux 11.3, the program, copied exactly from your post, can be compiled and run with no error messages when compiled with "icc -mkl -O ".

Yes, more details will help to reproduce the problem.
I used to try with the latest Intel compiler v12 bundled ( aka Composer XE 2011). no problems..

I am compiling it with GCC .The version of gcc and mkl is as follows:
GCC version used : gcc (GCC) 3.4.6 20060404 (Red Hat 3.4.6-8)


MKL version used : /app/intel/mkl/10.2.5.035

gcc matrixVectorMultMKL3.c -Wall -L $(MKLPATH) -I $(MKLINCLUDE) -lmkl_intel_ilp64 -lmkl_intel_thread -lmkl_core -liomp5 -lpthread -lm -o matrixVectorMultMKL3.o

When I compiled using your command ,it ran successfully so I am just confused why its not running with the previous command

Thanks and Regards

That's very strange. Please try to remove all mkl routines calling. Will then be the same result?

If you want to use ILP64 libraries, you probably have to tell GCC through suitable options that the default integer should be 64 bits.
