Dear all,

I get the following error message. And I cannot quite work out what is
wrong. I think the optim gets infinite values. Certainly my data do not
have any infinite values. How can I solve this?

fitdistr(A1, "weibull")
Error in optim(start, mylogfn, x = x, hessian = TRUE, ...) :
        non-finite value supplied by optim

I am using R version 1.9.1 on RedHat Linux, Kernel 2.6.8.
