Hi All,

Just joined this list. The last time I used FreeBSD was with 4.6-RELEASE, so a while ago now. I have just installed 6.0-RELEASE on my old laptop and have been configuring the system, am onto the kernel at the moment, have followed the traditional method in the FreeBSD handbook. All works fine (make depends) until I do 'make' then I get a compilation error as follows:

internal compiler error: Segmentation fault: 11
Please submit a full bug report,
with preprocessed source if appropriate.
See <URL:> for instructions.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/src/sys/modules/ata/atapci.
*** Error code 1

*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/src/sys/modules.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/src/sys/i386/compile/LAPTOP.

Last time I had an error with USB Mass Storage do I disabled it in my config hoping the kernel would compile, am starting to think this is something a bit more serious.

Any thoughts?




If you will take some advise from a 'newbe' I suggest that you use the
new method - I have done a kernel compile quite a few times with no
problems using it.

The only time I had problems with compiling was when I got the config
file wrong. I did find that after a failed compile I needed to clear out
the old obj libraries before trying again.


Will take advice from anybody. :-)

Whenever I have a failed compile I generally do a 'make cleandepends' and make clean first just to make sure it's all going from scratch. Might try the new method later and see if that gives me better results.
