program cpp0 got fatal signal 11

That's the message I get when I try to compile my kernel with "make bzImage". I'm running Woody (stable) after much heartache and frustrations with the .isos. I'm still not sure if the images are ok, but I appear to at least have a working console.

Some background: I upgraded my system to an Intel D865PERL board, Celeron 2.4GHz CPU using 512MB of dual-channel RAM. I failed to install three different distributions for various reasons, the worst of which was the fact I was never able to compile a new kernel, or extract bz2 files. I always got fatal errors.

I ended up copying all of CD1 to a partition (the install was crashing when running off the CD), and that seemed to give me a working system. BUT, I have to compile the modem drivers for my system (an Intel 536ep modem) and naturally I'm missing autoconf.h. So I figured if I tried to recompile the kernel it would be ok. Sadly, I can't compile bzImage, and I suppose the modules are completely out of the question.

So it looks like my compiler is broken. I'm reasonably sure my hardware is ok (Windows did install alright; in fact, it was the only OS that installed painlessly). The question is how do I fix it? I'm a Linux veteran, but a Debian newbie.

One other thing. I'm stuck without internet since the modem is driverless right now. I do have internet access through my laptop which is how I'm writing this in the first place. If anyone has any idea how I can fix this I'd greatly appreciate it. It appears I'm running cpp 2.95.4, with libc6-2.2.5 or something like that.

Finally, my computer doesn't want to respond to "shutdown" commands. It doesn't matter who issues them, or how often. The computer never runs runlevel 0 (or is it 6?). The only way I have of shutting off the system is by hitting the power button. My system is pretty unusable until these things get solved. Any ideas?

Yep. It was memory. Got it replaced at the store, now all is well. Good thing for Memtest86...
