[Q] Installing SRS5

Dear Gurus,

I am trying to install SRS5.0.1 on my Dec AlphaServer 2100 running

I have done what I should (I think) in the srsdb.i, embl.i, etc ...

Running srscheck and then srsupdate, I have consistently some 
problems with the "new" databanks: emblnew, swissprotnew, sptremblnew.

The building of the indices and/or the links for these banks fail 
with a "segmentation fault" and a core dump. I can see no problem
with the "main" banks (embl, swissprot, sptrembl).

Curiously, the "new" databanks are processed OK if I re-run srscheck
and srsupdate after having indexed the main banks.

Could it come from a bad parameter tuning of my machine?

Finally, after having repeated some times the "srscheck-srsupdate"
cycle, everything seems to have been indexed OK.

But now Netscape refuses to start a new SRS session with the
message "file could not be opened: /srs/tmp/1TZMo193nkD".

Can you help me?
