Description John Bollinger 2000-11-10 11:20:08 EST
RedHat 6.2 installation on my Sony VAIO was a breeze, and I have since installed all of the relevant updates
as of November 9, 2000.  That much is good.  However, when I "make" a complicated source tree I frequently
get compiler crashes reporting "internal compiler error: program cc1 got fatal signal 11".  Typically I can restart
the make and it will pick up where it left off.  This happened half a dozen times as I built a new kernel from the
stock 2.2.17 source (the running kernel was 2.2.14-whatever from the original RPM).  It has since happened
as I built the pcmcia utilities for my new kernel (under my new kernel).  So far I have seen no other sign of
system instability.

"gcc --version" reports egcs-2.91.66

The system also dual boots Windows 98, and I have seen no evidence of any kind instability there (but then,
it's Windows -- how would I know? :-) )

If the segfaults are not reproduceable (go away when you start gcc on the
same file next time), then it is 99.5% bad hardware (either memory chip problems,
or overheated CPU, or something of that kind).
A compilation stresses the machine much more than plain running X or Win9x.
So, please check out whether if you get segfault on a particular file that
if you run the same command again it segfaults again. If not, please check your
