but it keeps giving me the following error

[bwa_index] Pack FASTA... 56.76 sec
[bwa_index] Reverse the packed sequence... Segmentation fault

Can someone please help me with possible suggestion to fix this. Thank you.
I saw a similar error in another forum it turns out to be a hardware issue i.e memory less than 2G

N.B happy new year
