Unhandled SIGILL: An illegal instruction occurred.

asked 2018-08-25 13:40:26 -0600

I recently installed 8.3 on macos high sierra via pre-built binaries. I launched a jupyter notebook. The kernel shuts down when I try to display graphics e.g. when I try to use plot() Error message:

(no backtrace available)

Unhandled SIGILL: An illegal instruction occurred. This probably occurred because a compiled module has a bug in it and is not properly wrapped with sig_on(), sig_off(). Python will now terminate.

Is this a bug?

I get a similar error, when running the command

plot(x^2+1,(x,-1,1))

inside a terminal session.

For instance:

plot(x^2+1,(x,-1,))

TypeError Traceback (most recent call last) <ipython-input-1-8ef1c67ac85a> in <module>() ----> 1 plot(x**Integer(2)+Integer(1),(x,-Integer(1),))

Is this a bug?

Definitely yes. Especially with the "No backtrace available" you mention. But since you don't tell us what you were trying to do, it is pretty hard to divine the cause of the problem : in the plotting action, or in computing what you were trying to plot...

You should try to post a documented example (i. e. an actual attempt at plotting something and the complete answer of the system) on sage-support, where a developper might help you better than I can with so few details. (S)he might also be able to help you file a ticket.
