Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2001-09-25 05:43:55 EDT
Random compiler crashes (as opposed to reproduceable crashes always on the
same file same error which don't go away when restarting compilation) are in
99.9% cases hardware problems.
Please check your hardware and check you have enough virtual memory (RAM and
swap) for big compilations.
