Sounds like a hardware fault? Bad memory perhaps?


I've seen the same things with my 'new' Quadra 605:
* Segmentation fault
* Bus error
* Illegal instruction

I'm wondering if, despite this machine's listing in the list of macs
known to run Linux, that it won't work because of its having an LC040
(no FPU).

To date:

dpkg-reconfigure fails to run.
apt-get fails to run.

dpkg -i <foo.deb> runs.
