Most odd, and definately a new one!
My hope that this is something that is not obvious but none
the less simple - when we find it!

If you have a look at dgadmin, dgeestart etc you 'll see that they
are aliases/scripts that basically boil down to the command:

goldwater  --prompt='dotGNU DGEE' [something]

Why this is giving you floating point exception I have no idea!

What shell are you running?

Try this instead to see if you're having problems with the
aliases or script[s]:

address@hidden:~$ goldwater start
address@hidden:~$ goldwater boot

This will start the goldwater middleware and then boot the
DGEE services within it.

If these fail with the same errors, then you've got a problem
with goldwater (the middleware used by the dgee), in which
case can you strace the failing command and mail me the output?
(ie if 'start' is failing, do:
  address@hidden:~$ strace goldwater start > /tmp/gw.out 2>&1
and send me /tmp/gw.out

Make sure that you have enough IPC resources configured.
ipcs -l and ipcs -u will help you check the message queue
levels (consult the README, INSTALL etc for guidance).
Alternatively you _may_ have the script dgeediagnose
installed (I can't remember what version of the dgee that
appeared in - it may be in the current development release
in CVS (dgee-0.1.5)).  Try running dgeediagnose anyway
and see if you have it and then what it reports- it'll
tell you what to put right as far as ipc goes.

[Something for reference as it's not always obvious that you
need to change these settings : ]
I can see that you're running this as the nobody user.
This is the default for a dgee install as that is who it
assumes apache runs as. If your apache runs as some
other user you'll have to reconfigure dgee with 
--with-username= and  --with-usergroup=... and then
make install again.
But you're not getting this far yet :o(

Give the above 'goldwater' tests a try and see where it's failing.
