Kernel pb RH 6.1 / Cyrix 6x86

Kernel pb RH 6.1 / Cyrix 6x86

Post by jean christophe godefro » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00



Hi,

I have installed a redhat 6.1 on a 6x86 computer.
Kernel is 2.2.12
When i try to compile the kernel it crashes.
I found some explanation on the net but only with the RH 5.0.
When i upgrade kernel to 2.2.16 i get the same problem.
Does anyone had the same problem or can give me an advice ?

Thanks in advance.

Kernel pb RH 6.1 / Cyrix 6x86

This isn't specific to Linux or gcc but it might help.  The 6x86 CPU
is, at its default speed, basically overclocked, and they can run
extremely hot relative to other processors.  You might find that it is
more stable if you put a bigger heatsink/fan on it.  Compiling is very
CPU-intensive and more vulnerable to stability problems than most
things you can do.  I have had no problems compiling the kernel
(2.2.17) on my 6x86-PR150, this is Slackware 7, but I think they both
use egcs-1.1.2 so it shouldn't be much different.

1. Redhat 6.1 problems on Cyrix 6x86 P200+

I have had problems recompiling the kernel, using RH6.1 on a
Cyrix 6x86 P200+ machine. I am getting Signal 11 during the
compilaton, causing the make to terminate.

This problem was addressed in a past releas of RH.

Does anyone know of a work around?
