Default CNV core dump problem

HI I'm using CNVnator to do some CNV analysis but came across problems of core dump

Basically I first generated .root files from .bam files; then merged those small .root files into larger ones. See below:

  total 139G
        6.5G NA12878_10.root   3.7G NA12878_18.root   9.1G NA12878_4.root
         16K NA12878_1_1.root  2.8G NA12878_19.root   8.8G NA12878_5.root
        6.6G NA12878_11.root    11G NA12878_1.root    8.3G NA12878_6.root
        6.5G NA12878_12.root   3.1G NA12878_20.root   7.7G NA12878_7.root
        4.6G NA12878_13.root    16K NA12878_2_1.root  7.1G NA12878_8.root
        4.4G NA12878_14.root   1.8G NA12878_21.root   6.1G NA12878_9.root
        4.1G NA12878_15.root   1.8G NA12878_22.root   7.2G NA12878_X.root
        4.1G NA12878_16.root    11G NA12878_2.root    253M NA12878_Y.root
        4.0G NA12878_17.root   9.7G NA12878_3.root
This _1, _2, _3 ....represents chromosome number. The interesting here is, for NA12878_1.root and NA12878_2.root, the two largest files (11GB each), somehow two additional files are generated named as NA12878_1_1.root and NA12878_2_1.root (16K). I think this is core dump problem because core.* files are also generated (which I don't show here)

Is it because these two files are too large?

The part of the errors go like this:
And the werid error report about NA12878_1_1 and NA12878_2_1 and dumped core

Fill: Switching to new file: /home/xug/nearline/NA12878root/NA12878_2_1.root

I then used the generated .root files for further step like make histogram, there are errors (not surprisingly) but not only for NA12878_1 or _2, but also for others like _6
part of errors are shown below:
SysError in <TFile::Seek>: cannot seek to position -1857646445 in file NA12878_chr6.root, retpos=-1 (Invalid argument)
    Calculating histogram with bin size of 100 for chromosome 'chr6' ...

    SysError in <TFile::Seek>: cannot seek to position -1857646445 in file NA12878_chr6.root, retpos=-1 (Invalid argument)

Anyone has encountered such problems? thx

I am trying to run CNVnator.The command I used is as follows:
cnvnator -root NA12878.root -chrom 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 -tree aln.bam
but it gives an error about bad allocation.I think there is some problem with the memory.

Parsing file aln.bam ...
Assuming BAM file for aln.bam
Allocating memory ...
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::bad_alloc'
what(): std::bad_alloc

I am using an external hard drive with sufficiently large memory.Could anyone please tell me how to get rid of this error?

Hi guys,
i am sorry to revive this thread after long time but i also encountered this problem while trying to generate histograms on merged root file with CNVnator_0.3. Wrote to the author and awaiting reply.

However i was digging the net and found only this thread. But no info how to solve. So i started digging in the software. Seems that the problem is not in the ROOT package but CNVnator itself.
Why? Cos i found that for example the size of the genome is hardcoded:

from HisMaker.hh:
const static double GENOME_SIZE = 2.9e+9; // Excluding gaps

Another problems is that in Genome.cpp there are also hardcoded lengths of chromosomes for hg18 and hg19. Also there are only the standard chromosomes so is not the full hg18 or hg19. However even the sizes/lengths of the hg19 i have and the ones encoded in CNVnator differ. For example chr1:
CNVnator - 247249719
My hg19 - 249250621

So its not fun. The problem is i am not really C++ programmer so its kind of tough for me to figure out the whole procedure but i will try to solve that problem somehow. IF someone who is more proficient in C++ wants to help it will be really appreciated.
