Error: Segment Violation - Bailing out of ARCEDIT

Solution or Workaround

Description:

When attempting to start Arcedit, one of the following error messages is returned:

Arc: ARCEDIT
Bailing out of ARCEDIT

Program failed to start or was killed

Try RESTOREARCEDIT to recover your edit session

or

ARC: ae
FATAL ERROR
Segment Violation

Solution:

Increase swap or paging space allocation. There is insufficient swap or paging space for the system to activate ARCEDIT.

Swap and paging space are resources independent of Arcinfo and, if depleted, cause a SEGMENT VIOLATION. For example, each session of ARCEDIT on the SUN workstations uses 55 megabytes of swap. If a user has 100 MB of swap allotted, then two windows running ARCEDIT will exceed their limits. See Installation manuals for suggested swap and paging space guidelines for the various platforms.
