:cry:
Once I got a clean LVS, I ran RCX but I got an error.

#===================================================

I check the memory while I was runnung RCX. The total memory was 8GB. RCX used 3.3GB and 5GB was free. Besides I had 20 GB of swap space. Is this a memory problem or something else?

The second questions is the capgen. RCX automatically runs capgen or I have to run capgen before running RCX? In the log file, I saw this.

#====================================================
capgen Capgen results will be written to directory: /local3/consult2/X8TRANSCEIVE_RC_LP/kkk

Does this mean capgen was run?

Thanks in advance.
