I have just installed Admixture, and it fails to run on my data files, giving the following output:

ou056055:public veaan84p$ ./admixture --cv 5 * ADMIXTURE Version 1.3.0 * * Copyright 2008-2015 * * David Alexander, Suyash Shringarpure, * * John Novembre, Ken Lange * * * * Please cite our paper! * * Information at *

Cross-validation will be performed. Folds=5. Random seed: 43 Point estimation method: Block relaxation algorithm Convergence acceleration algorithm: QuasiNewton, 3 secant conditions Point estimation will terminate when objective function delta < 0.0001 Estimation of standard errors disabled; will compute point estimates only. Abort trap: 6

It does run on the hapmap3 file provided, but not on my plink input files. I do not have a .map file in the directory, but this should not be required for a .bed file. I do have the .bim and .fam files in the directory.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

"Abort trap: 6" usually means a buffer overflow or other memory management bug: the program is perhaps trying to read from or write to memory it doesn't own. I'd suggest contacting the developers.
