Description Nathanael Noblet 2002-11-25 11:32:04 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i586; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021003

Description of problem:
When trying to compile any kernel version. The compiler crashes at random places
with "Internal Error: Illegal Instruction" and sometimes "Internal Error:
Segmentation Fault". The machine is a K6-2 350 with 64MB of RAM. I had RH 7.3
installed and all updates made. Various kernel versions trying to compile all
generate the same thing. The error does not happen at the same place, and after
one error I can enter "make bzImage" again and it will continue past the
previous error, continue on for awhile and crash again. Eventually after a
number of errors, it will complete the compile.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Get kernel sources
2.make menuconfig or make xconfig
3.make bzImage

Actual Results:  Randomly crashes at various stages in the compile.

Expected Results:  A clean compile

This is typical symptom of bad hardware.
Check your memory with memtest86, check other components.
