gambitToFoam mesh convertion error
I'm trying to convert a .neu mesh from gambit and after creating a new case directory I get a segmentation error like this:

Default patch type set to empty
#0 Foam::error::printStack(Foam::Ostream&) in "/home/santiago/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-1.6/lib/linuxGccDPOpt/"

Segmentation fault

Any suggestions on how I should proceed will be very appreciated. Thanks

Prefer importing your mesh as .msh file (Gambit side)
Then in OF use: fluentMeshToFoam or fluent3DMesToFoam (if you used the tpoly utility from tgrid-->hanging nodes)
