It's a segmentation violation.  If it happens here, as Doug says, it's
probably an indication of hardware problems.  A typical culprit is
cache; try disabling cache from BIOS and see if it still happens
(it'll be *really* slow, but at least you can figure out if you're
looking in the right place).  Another possibility we saw recently was
a defective SCSI controller (in this case, NCR, but I don't think
that's relevant).

The signals are defined in /usr/include/sys/signal.h, and the errors
are in /usr/include/errno.h.  In each case, the description is really
intended for people who already understand the system.  If you need
more explanations, a good book on programming is probably your best
bet.  There aren't many non-programming books which explain them.  I
go into some detail about signals in "Porting UNIX Software", but I
don't mention error numbers much.
