I am trying to use RMA for soybean chips. I have a problem with RMA causing segmentation fault. I get Background correcting Normalizing Calculating Expression Segmentation Fault It does not happen for the small chips like yeast or mouse. I wonder if it is related with memory allocation when the C functions get called since soybean chip has more than 60,000 genes. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks, Hua Li

You might try (if on Unix) running R in a debugger, R -d ddd or R -d gdb and seeing if you can help us to track down the problem - as it stands it is pretty hard to say. It could be size (but I doubt it), it could be that someone is accessing in the wrong spot; I am not sure that last time that affy was run through something like valgrind to check for leaks or inappropriate accessing.

In the immediate: The use 'expresso' (with the RMA-advocated pre-processing methods) should be segfault-free...
