Description of problem:
I can't compile anything without getting errors. I've tried both recompiling the
kernal use the "Building a Custom Kernal" instructions in Appendix A of the
Customization Guide. I've also tried doing a source install of mysql, same results.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.make bzImage

Actual Results:  everything seems to go fine, then the process just dies and
leaves the error information shown below in "Additional Information".

Expected Results:  It should have built the kernal or mysql binaries.

Comment 1 Michael Lee Yohe 2002-12-27 20:01:26 UTC
Many isolated GCC errors are due to ailing hardware.  You say that you are
unable to compile with gcc for multiple source packages (kernel, mysql, etc.). 
Are you overclocking your system?  Is the system old or a relatively new system?

Comment 2 Nicholas Fitzgerald 2002-12-27 21:18:26 UTC
The system is as follow:
MSI 694D Pro2 MB
Dual PIII 1GHz
2 gig memory
Sony 52x CD
HDD on Primary Master: IBM-DTLA-305040 40 gig
HDDs (2) on Promise FastTrack 100 RAID: Seagate ST380021A 80 gig
Video is SIS AGP with 4meg

All of this hardware has been purchased new within the last 2 years.

Comment 3 Richard Henderson 2004-10-03 11:17:44 UTC
No test case.  Problem description points to hardware.  Two years old.
