I just started (a few minutes ago) getting a similar message on all
my compiles (in the middle of building Tk...). In my case it was
the preprocessor (cpp) instead of cc1, but it is now happening on
every single compile I try, even with trivial programs. I have
20MB RAM and a 32MB swap, and have plenty of room on both (after killing
a lot of processes). I may have been low at the time the error first
occured (3 xservers running and one remote login), so it's possible
that cpp became corrupted then, and now it's still trying to run
the one in the RAM-resident disk buffers. Is there a way to force
a reread of a program from the actual disk, to see if that's the
case? (I.e. a way to invalidate the disk buffers?)
Other programs remain unaffected, for what that's worth.
