You're either suffering from a broken gcc version, or you do have
faulty hardware components. See for
a good explanation of possible causes for the sig11 error.

This row says it all

You propably did nothing wrong, sig. 11 usually has to do with hardware problems.
Is your computer overclocked? Are the memory timings correct? Are all the
connectors and card slots clean? You could try to remove cards, memory etc. and
put them in again, to clean off possible corrotion or dirt.
I think there once was many threads about that some specific non-intel processor
would almost always give signal 11, I don't remember which one though.

1. help needed: AWE32 PNP won't work - kernel won't compile - gurus read this!

Hello all,

I went through the Sound howto files, I tried to make the AWE32 PNP
work via the /etc/rc.d/rc.modules (auto detect for IRQ 5 DMA1 and 5)
I tried to compile my kernel for the AWE32 PNP sound blaster but the
message I receive while compiling is:
sb_common.c:21: #error You will need to configure the sound driver
sb_common.c:266: warning: `sb16_set_mpu_port' defined but not used
make[2]: *** [sb_common.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [sub_dirs] Error 2
make: *** [linuxsubdirs] Error 2

Any suggestions/solutions. There seems to be no way of dactivating
the mpu interface with the make config option. Nor I do not now how to
enable it or disable it on the soundcard.

Thanks for your  replies!!!!!!!!
