Ok, got a little problem here. I've downloaded the packages required to build LFS, Binutils compiles perfectly, no problems at all. However it seems that when I am compiling GCC-core-3.4.0 when it gets to certain files i.e. expect.o (That's the only one I can remember) it crashes. During compilation it goes through what "looks" like it's probing exactly what my processor is capable of (?)
One of the files I can remember is,
This takes 99.8% of my CPU time.
The file that it stops on each time is different (that can be expected), and I'm really getting tired of having to reset my computer every three or four minutes!
Tell me if I'm wrong but would hardware configuration have anything to do with this.
I've got 768MB of DDR2100 (I think, might be 2700) RAM
-Thoroughbred AMD XP 2400+
-ECS K7VTA3 REV 8
-Linksys Tulip Class Ethernet Card
-TV Wonder VE
-WD600 60GB Drive IDE 100
-WD800 80GB Drive IDE 100
-Slackware 9.1 (Reportedly has some problems, might this be the problem?)
The system also reported I/O Errors during compilation last night,
libiberty.a, this one also caused problems said it was invalid format (This was before the make ended and was trying to read the debugging symbols).
I can get more information regarding what is going on, this is what I can remember off the top of my head.
