Description of problem:
I have tried to build various programs on FC3T1 on my home PC which is
a K6/2 
90% fail nearly immediately with "internal compiler error - illiegal

example kernel

make menuconfig
unable to parse config file
internal compiler error - illiegal instruction

On my work box I have no problems at all which is a duron (i686)

You haven't specified which exact gcc rpm you are using.
Recently GCC stopped using some prefetch instructions which are supposed
to be ignored on arches that don't implement them, but e.g. VIA C3
and maybe K6/2 as well don't comply.
Comment 2 Need Real Name 2004-08-12 04:58:59 EDT
With standard gcc from FC3T1 nothing compiles, pretty much.

If I use the compat 33 rpms I have more success, though I still cant
get the kernel to compile. (it does get past the make menuconfig
stage, but then bombs very quickly, afraid I cant remember the file it
fails on)
Comment 3 Jakub Jelinek 2004-08-12 05:06:00 EDT
That's the problem.  The gcc change went in gcc-3.4.1-3, i.e. right
after FC3T1.  Just update to gcc packages from rawhide.
