When memtest86 is run the kernel isn't. No other program is but
memtest. If it is showing memory problems, thats the problem!
Now I have nerver run the package memtester, so I don't know if thats
what you are running, but I doubt any 'real' memeroy test program
would be able to test the memory with anything else running.
If you have more then one memory stick, try testing them one at a
time. A kernel compile does pressure the memory and 'usually' shows
up bad memory.
:-) HTH, YMMV, HAND :-)
Real Programmers think better when playing Adventure or Rogue.
