I'm at my wits end trying to deal with the problems I've having and I'm
wodering if anybody out there has any suggestions.
First, a summary of my system:
Acer Pentium 100
24 Meg EDO RAM
1.6 GB EIDE Western Digital
Diamond Stealth 64 Video 2MEG
Linksys EtherPCI ethernet card
When first installing slackware I encountered lots of problems with
segmentation faults, and CRC errors from tar. I think I traced those
problems to bad memory which I got rid of. After that I was able to
install slackware 3.0.0 OK. When I went to recompile the kernel, I
started getting messages that said something like "got fatal error in
cc1" and the make would just quit. This didn't happen all the time,
just most of the time. Once or twice I was able to re-compile the
Once I finally gpt things I working I hooked my computer up to the
network, and it worked great for a couple of days. Then it just started
freezing. And I mean just complete freeze, no message, nothing.
Now the situatiuon is that I can install either slackware 3.0.0 with
kernel 1.2.13 or debian 1.1 with kernel 2.0.0 fine. Occassionally I can
recompile the kernel. And pretty reliably, after about ten or fif*
minutes of running, the system freezes. It seems to be perhaps
trigerred by network access, although I'm not sure about that.
Liek I said, at this point, I'm way past what I know, and any
suggestions would be much appreciated.
