Full subject (since phpbb chops subjects):
trouble installing ghc 6.6: xargs: /usr/bin/ar: terminated by signal 11.

I'm having trouble installing the bleeding edge ghc 6.6 (glasgow haskell compiler) from source, as something keeps killing make. I was able to install ghc 6.4 using apt-get without any problems.

Members of the haskell cafe forum said signal 11 was a bad sign, maybe of hardware trouble.

But user mode linux has its quirks, so I'm shouting out to the forum before I post an "official" support request.

People at the haskell cafe suggested I run memtest86 and friends. This involves installing a boot partition and mucking about with lilo, which sounds daunting to me as I don't have experience with it.

So before going that route, anybody have other ideas how I should troubleshoot this, perhaps peculiar to the virtual linux environment?

Much obliged,

thomas.

Which host server are you on, and have you tried Latest 2.6 in your config profile?

After the complimentary memory upgrade, everything worked as it should.

Cheers :)
