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?
