Do you have any output before this to show, or is this all.

Is bzip2 in your path?  I would try to run bzip2 and see if orcallator.se
can find it.

You'll probably need to find this section in orcallator.se

// Define global for tracking raw disk data.
#define MAX_RAWDISKS    1024
RawDisk                 RAW_disk[MAX_RAWDISKS];

and increase 1024 to 2048 or larger until orcallator.se doesn't crash.
