[email@example.com: Re: Re: is it the right CPU?]
Signal 11 (SIGSEGV) from gcc usually means some kind of hardware
problem. The classic example of this problem is memory board not
configured with enough wait states.
However, it appears there's a new twist to this problem. I don't know
if it affects anyone here.

Well, it looks like you got some of those over-clocked chips sold by
humm-hummm dealers that want to make big $$$ on your back. It's
relatively easy to buy P5-90 and re-stamp them with some other speed,
usually 100 or 120. Same for 75 -> 90 or sometimes even 100 MHz.
Note: this over-clocking is supposed not to work on the latest chips from
intel, where some hardware mechanism has been implemented to stop the
fraud... and the 'fun' of advanced users who started doing it quite
regularly lately (see comp.sys.intel newsgroup for more info...)
Argue until you get REAL 120 MHZ parts. Good luck!
.sig coming Real Soon Now !
