Internal compiler errors are typically a hardware problem (see bug #20600). You may want to check your CPU cooling and your RAM.

(How much RAM does this box have?)
Comment 2 robert 2003-07-15 18:41:30 UTC
This is on an IBM Thinkpad 600 w/ 128M ram and ~84M swap. I was just able to install Kismet from the tarball, so maybe the CFLAGS passed in emerge are too much... Currently I have "-march=i686 -O3".

PS. Is there a way to tell portage/emerge that I have this installed?

Comment 3 Jon Portnoy (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-07-16 10:34:21 UTC
Check out the 'inject' option in the man page for emerge.
Comment 4 Florian Pressler 2003-12-26 12:41:25 UTC
I don't think it's a hardware problem, as I have exactly the same effect when I try to emerge kismet. I had no problem with other emerges yet. My CFLAGS are "march=pentium-mmx -O3".
Comment 5 Henrik Brix Andersen 2004-10-26 02:54:30 UTC
Is this problem still present with net-wireless/kismet-2004.10.1?
Comment 6 Henrik Brix Andersen 2004-10-26 02:56:11 UTC
Changing to NEEDINFO.
Comment 7 Henrik Brix Andersen 2004-12-29 06:14:29 UTC
Closing due to lack of feedback.
