When I start Python in a terminal window on OS 10.10.5, it closes with “Segmentation error: 11” after the second line I input, regardless of what the two instructions are. For example, if I enter:
>>> for x in range(1000): print(x)
That works great, however if I enter:
>>> for x in range(1000): ... print(x)
then I receive an error when I push enter on the second line. I can also run a script with more than two lines without issue. I want to create a segment table containing the beginning entry address of each segment given in the pictorial representation given here. As of now, I upgraded to OS10.10.5 this afternoon, so that may be the problem.
However, I recently loaded IPython (along with numerous other programs) and have been using it for the past few days, so it may be something else I recently installed. I had a number of failed attempts at installing PyQt in which I executed configure.py but then the “make” command failed, which made me suspicious.
I attempted to reinstall Python, but this did not alleviate the problem. IPython and IDLE both function normally. I’m simply concerned about what the fundamental problem may be.
