Subject:   Problem upgrading 2.2.2 to -stable
Message-ID:  <>

I've got a machine at a customer site that has 2.2.2 on it, and I want
to upgrade it to -stable (the post-2.2.2 -stable).

I got the sources over there, but I'm having problems with the build.

I already re-installed the includes, install, and make.

The problem is that a "make world" will abort with a coredump from cc1
before it completes.  Right now, I'm getting them in lib-tools.

I suspect a memory parity problem, but I don't think the customer is
going to install parity memory on the box.

Since a "make world" just won't complete without problems, is there any
other way I can go?

If I just "make all" until everything is done, and then "make install"
is there a decent chance I'll be OK?

How about (virtual) "make all install clean all install"?

I suspect I'll also need to rebuild a kernel before I reboot, too.

I won't bitch about the current "make" system because I don't have
anything better to suggest right now.
