I am currently running with an AMD DX2/66 (purchased less than 2 months
ago) and have not experienced any problems with ghostscript. However I
did have problems when attempting kernel recompilation.
After the initial installation of the OS I then ran the config script and
opted out of all the drivers I didn't need, aswell as enabling sound support.
Once the config script had been run I issued an 'make zImage'
About 3/4 of the way into the recompilation, gcc would exit on an internal
error (signal 11). At first I suspected a lack of memory, eventually I
found that disabling the external (256Kb) cache (AMI BIOS) 'solved' the
problem. I now have a leaner kernel.
I have never had any trouble before or since when compiling ANY programs
other than the kernel, with the cache enabled. I have never had any
problems running programs/kernel with cache enabled.
I didn't dig too deep into exactly which part of the kernel gcc was
falling over, I think it was concerned with low level timing routines.
Anyone else had this problem on an AMD?
