Try to make your hardware more stable, eg by reducing RAM cl state in BIOS from cl2 to cl2.5 to cl3 or from ultra to fast to normal.

Compile error in linux kernel codes usually caused by overclocked hardware (usually RAM and sometime CPU).

I use memtest in SuSE, and it is available at boot option. If memtest or similar hardware testing for a long period fails than suspect the hardware. Sombody can help you find this tester.

Try boot in safe mode then recompile. If problem persist in this mode than hardware setting could be blame. If problem diappears in this mode then it may just your software setting.

Newer stable kernel plays significant role, but the most compile errors and instabilities can be reduced only by upgrading packages. For RedHat use red carpet. Somebody can help you with this.

In SuSE I use stable production k_athlon kernel 2.4.20 with great stability and have faster user response. If I want more performance of a package I just rebuild its srpm with athlon as target before install it as rpm package. So good luck.

Have a lot of fun :-)
