internal compiler error (cc1)

I'm trying to compile various downloaded packages from the net, including the GIMP, sced-095 etc. All seem to run through the configure stages fine, but as soon as I try and make them they'll churn away for a while, then bomb out with an internal compiler error.

Linux installation : slackware 96
                   (from Infomagic's L.D.R. DEC96)
Running on a P166 with oodles of RAM.

Can anyone tell me what's happening?

What is the exact error you get? (Pasting the last 4 or 5 lines of output would be immensely useful.)

OK, the only consistant line (ie, the only one not relating to the file it fails on) is :

gcc: Internal Compiler Error : program cc1 got fatal signal 11

Aha! This is a fairly common problem, and unfortunately also quite a nasty one. Usually it's caused by hardware failures. There is an excellent resource on the web that explains this and any solutions far better than I could here, so I'll just give you the URL:

Good luck.

Thanks, I've just downloaded the FAQ so I'll try it this weekend. It sounds about right though...

Thanks Again,
