Description of problem:
I ran as root "rpmbuild --rebuild kernel-2.4.18-17.8.0.src.rpm". Seemed to
enter countless loops thru the build process until after 47 minutes (on an
athlon 1800+!) it failed with a segmentation fault. (see below)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpmbuild --rebuild kernel-2.4.18-17.8.0.src.rpm
Actual Results: this is the end of the rpmbuild output:
i2o_pci.c:392:1: warning: no newline at end of file
i2o_block.c:510: warning: `i2ob_flush' defined but not used
rcpci45.c:105: warning: `RCinit' declared `static' but never defined
ns83820.c:1710: warning: `ns83820_probe_phy' defined but not used
aironet4500_core.c: In function `awc_receive_packet':
aironet4500_core.c:1936: internal error: Segmentation fault

make: *** [aironet4500_core.o] Error 1
make: *** [_modsubdir_net] Error 2
make: *** [_mod_drivers] Error 2
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.69123 (%build)
Expected Results: build actually complete
This is a new box I built, and the 2nd kernel build I attempted.
kernel-2.4.18-14 in /usr/src/linux-2.4 also failed, even tho I followed the
instructions in the RH Customization Guide.
If they are failing at different random points its almost certainly hardware.
gcc happens to also be a very good detector of bad RAM chips.
Test the system with memtest86
Assuming this was bad hardware. If there was a reproduceable GCC
bug, we would not be able to build the rpms ourselves.
