After a few tries, the GENERIC finally built, but my custom kernel
build keeps dying.
Sometimes there's a core file (sh.core), sometimes there isn't.
Searching the mail archives, this "Error code 139" seems to pop up
quite a bit. I didn't change any compiler flags. I tried 'unlimit'
but that didn't help. I've got 128 MB of RAM and 256 MB of swap.
Now that you mention sig 11, I'm wondering if there isn't a memory
problem on the SX. I'm not using ECC, just ordinary PC100 SDRAM, and
when the "sig 11" thing used to show up on the Redhat-Linux lists,
memory was always the first thing to check.
