Description of problem:
Internal error: Segmentation fault. is displayed many times during a long
compilation. Restarting compilation it goes thru.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Take a big project(at least a few files should be huge)
Try compiling latest perl code
Actual Results: Internal error: Segmentation fault
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.
