Done and it segfaults ;((

I'm not sending this one in yet, because I've found the problem a lot
bigger than I (could have) imagined:

A short while after sending the initial mail about the segfault, I've
tried installing X. Got the same error I got last time installing X (the
'PEX-fonts-thing'), and requested a man-page: segfault. ;(

Having seen enough segfaults for one day, I thought, why not upgrade to a
new kernel (2.2.14), so I installed the kernel-source and ran 'make
mrproper' and got 'some' information:

sparcy:/usr/src/linux# make mrproper
BUG IN DYNAMIC LINKER ld.so: Segmentation fault

I think something has gone wrong while installing, because otherwise a lot
more people should have problems...

I think I'm going to run the install again sometime this week,
unless someone has a better idea/clue...
(then I can test the new boot-disks for IPC ;)) )
