I used RH 5.1, 5.2 and 6.0 on my Cyrix 6x86 166+ processor,
but when I installed RH 6.1 sig11 appeared, I thought my hardware
is broken, but on newsgroups I meet another person with the
same problem. Now I use SuSE 6.2, and see no sig11 no more...
It _is_ bug in RedHat 6.1, but not in kernel (I compiled myself
many, even tried old kernel from my old system), I am not
sure what is it - glibc? gcc?

Please answer.. I want to back to RH...

Its not uncommon to see cyrix in paticular with overheat or cache errors that
bit depending
where some things land in kernel space
