I've been noticing some "flakiness" when building recently. For example,
I occasionally get "cc: Internal compiler error: program cc1 got fatal
signal 10", and signal 11 (bus error and segmentation fault). Make also
gives strange errors, like it can't find "Oakefile.inc", but when I check
the Makefile and veryify that it has "Makefile.inc", and run make again,
it works fine. This is building the June 8 sources with May 23 binaries.
I also got "/usr/share/mk/bsd.files.mk, line 2: need an operator" a few
times during build.
Oh, I also had a lot of sources in /usr/src/games that had ^@'s all
through them. I assumed that was just some problem during transfer, and
after I re-downloaded them I havn't seen that since.
Has anyone else seen this? I'm a little concerned it may be my kernel.
I've got ext2fs and atapi support compiled in, and I had to do a bit of
modification to get ext2fs to work with the latest sources, and to get
atapi to work with the new DMA changes. If no-one else has seen any of
this, then I'll assume it's either something I did, or my hardware. I
will probably try reverting to a standard -current kernel to see if it
still happens. It's pretty rare though. I havn't been able to finish a
build yet (sometimes it gets by the make includes, sometimes it doesn't),
but it goes for quite a while without any problems...
