IC50 pss anaysis problem

I encountered something strange and I hope someone can help me here.

I just installed ic5.0 in redhat 8. Everything works fine until I try simulating pss. I always get the following error, even for a very simple circuit which is run properly on IC50 installed on Solaris:

Internal error found in spectre during periodic steady state analysis pss'.
Please run getSpectreFiles' or send the netlist, the spectre log file,
the behavioral model files, and any other information that can help
Assertion failed in file `hopss.c' at line 1313.
Assertion failed.

I guess it may be casued some Envirument Variable whichs is not set properly or maybe I need a OS patch for IC50 to run properly on RH80.

any one can run PSS analysis properly on RH7.3 or RH7.2?

I had the similar problem but not sure whether the exact one as yours. However, I found out that spectreRF is not supported under ic50. You have to upgrade to either ic5032 or ic5033.

I also encounted it in unix.
Because we have many server, I will change other server when I had this problem.

7.3 and 8.0 is also successful! Not only support 7.2!

But using Red Hat needs a little bit of tweaking here and there

IC50 can be installed under redhat7.2,redhat7.3&redhat8.0,but redhat9.0 can not be supported!

Pengboy,
Maybe firstly, you should check a file in ~/simulation/<cellviewname>/spectre/schematic/psf
directory, but I forgot the file name, whether the file is larger than 2,000MB.

If it does be true, you should appoint a swapfile in the pss setting window->option
