Subject2.4.7-ac10 hangs while compiling 2.4.9
i'm currently in the process of trying to build a 2.4.9 kernel on a
2.4.7-ac10 system. at seemingly random times, the system comes to a halt
during the middle of a compile, to a point where the cursor no longer even
flashes. when this happens, tapping the atx power switch has no effect; it
must be held for the 4 or 5 seconds to get a response from the system. my
first suspicion was the ram, but all 512mb checks out with
memtest86. what's worse about this is that there's no sign of an oops, no
kernel panics, nothing. just a screen with a non-functioning cursor.

while, admittedly, this is the first kernel i've attempted to build on
this system while running 2.4.7ac10, i did add an 80 gb western digital
7200rpm disc to the system over the weekend.

scripts/ver_linux output:

Linux mercury 2.4.7-ac10 #4 SMP Sun Aug 12 15:55:44 CDT 2001 i686 unknown

if there's anything else i can provide to help diagnose the problem, i'll
be more than happy to provide it.

any help in regards to this would be much appreciated.

Getting a SCSI chain working is perfectly simple if you remember that
there must be exactly three terminations: one on one end of the cable, one
on the other end, and the goat, terminated over the SCSI chain with
a silver-handled knife whilst burning *black* candles. --- Anthony
