Installation Problems

I seem to be having problems compiling and running the Linux version of FlightGear.  After I compile everything and attempt to run the program I end up getting a segmentation failed error..  Many times dealing with freeing memory and deleting memory.  If anyone has any information about this please let me know.  Thank you,

That sounds familiar. You can try the patch posted here earlier:

default C-172 overspeed

I've noticed, again, that the default C-172 RPM is too high, and too fast. I could swear
that it wasn't this way in JSBSim CVS, but I could be wrong. I'll try and check this out
again.

Any input from others?

Aircraft 'nods' between narrow AoA range

Hi all,

To keep my hand in at modelling from scratch (as opposed to updating existing 
models or working on FDM/AP stuff), I've started on an English Electric 
Canberra B(I)8 - this is very similar to the early B-57A.

If I use a high altitude cruise data, I can get it to solve and fly reasonably 
well but there's a narrow range of speed/AoA where the a/c starts to 'nod'.

Where the speed is low enough that the AoA is higher than the upper critical 
value the a/c is stable and it's also stable once it's going fast enough that 
the AoA is below the lower critical value.

I haven't given specific values for the critical speeds/AoAs because I can 
vary them by tweaking various parameters but the range is always about 0.6-7 
deg.

If I use low-altitude data there's no problem, but then I'm pretty sure that 
the a/c wouldn't be able to get anywhere near it's operational ceiling - 
46500ft.  By todays standards the Canberra is a pretty low powered a/c - 2 x 
7500 lb thrust turbojets but it was nevertheless a good performer at 
altitude, and quite fast too - 620 mph (538 kt) at sea-level, I assume - the 
high-alt values I found, and which I'm using are 470 kt at 40000 ft.

Can anyone shed any light on what might be causing this 'nodding'?

For those who're interested, http://www.b-57canberra.org/labs_detail.htm gives 
some info on the Low Altitude Bombing System (LABS) technique, which was used 
with Canberras and B-57s.

Basically, it involved approaching the target at 425 kt and 1000 ft agl, 
initiating a 3.5 G pull-up and then releasing the bomb when the gyro tumbled 
i.e. vertical:)
