Hi Matt and other molpro experts,

Thank you for your assistance.  A member of my group had recommended
using export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 in the .bashrc file but I had 
commented it out in the expectation that the ifc / RH9 incompatibility 
fix recommended in

was sufficinet.  However, I did what you suggested: make veryclean, used 
your CONFIG file recommendations, and recompiled.  As before, compilation 
was trouble-free and the log showed no errors.  However, I again had 
"Adress Error" when I ran.  Actually, I do not know too much about ld or 
the LD_ASSUME_KERNEL variable (nor NPTL--what's that?) so I'll read up on 

Let me know if you have other suggestions.  Is the only solution 
downgrading to Red Hat 8 (or earlier)?  Has no one managed to install 
molpro under Red Hat 9?

Thanks again,

ps: Hyper-threading is definitely diasbled (this is what 
/var/log/dmesg shows).
