Default 1.0-8756 will not compile with 4 gig memory support?

Hi,
Had this same problem with your last release, and waited for the new release, but it has same problem!
I am running an opteron 175 dual core with 4 gig of ram on a Gigabyte K8-Triton motherboard. When I compile a kernel of 2.4.32 with dual processor support all is well and the nvidia drivers work well.
However, if I enable support for more than 1 gig of memory (4 is installed!) then the driver will not compile. It ends up with a gcc fatal error??!
I have attached the nvidia-installer.log showing the errors. Any help would be appreciated, this machine will be supporting a large telescope, and it really needs the extra memory.

Thanks!

nv-vm.c:347: internal compiler error: Illegal instruction

Check your ram with MemTest86+, or try a different GCC perhaps...

Or perhaps just try with a 2.6.x kernel...

Xorbe,
Thanks! Your first guess was the problem, a bad Corsair XMS memory module, and memtest86+ did indeed show the problem. After removal of this chip everything worked.

Thanks Again!
