From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

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):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

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
Please submit a full bug report,
with preprocessed source if appropriate.
See <URL:http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/> for instructions.
make[2]: *** [aironet4500_core.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [_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

Additional info:

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.
Comment 1 Alan Cox 2002-12-15 20:53:18 EST
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
Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2004-10-02 16:39:01 EDT
Assuming this was bad hardware.  If there was a reproduceable GCC
bug, we would not be able to build the rpms ourselves.
