    gentoo problems on fujitsu p-2120


    i can boot into the live cd and start my install. its not until i chroot where i run into problems.
    first i cant use nano. it gives me the error illegel seek. Not a big deal cause i can nano from a different term.... so i move on and set my cflags correctly for the tm5800 prcessor

    gcc 3.x -O3 -march=i686 -pipe -fomit-frame-pointer -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 -falign-functions=0 -falign-jumps=0 -falign-loops=0

    then i emerge system, and continually through the install i see the error i8253 count too high! resetting...

    doesnt seem to affect anything but when emerge system gets to binutils it fails saying

    makeinfo --split-size=5000000 -I . \
    -o as.info `test -f 'as.texinfo' || echo './'`as.texinfo
    make[2]: *** [as.info] Illegal instruction
    make[2]: *** Deleting file `as.info'
    make[2]: Leaving directory `/var/tmp/portage/binutils-2.14.90.0.7-r4/work/binutils-2.14.90.0.7/gas/doc'
    make[1]: *** [info-recursive] Error 1
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/var/tmp/portage/binutils-2.14.90.0.7-r4/work/binutils-2.14.90.0.7/gas'
    make: *** [info-gas] Error 1

    !!! ERROR: sys-devel/binutils-2.14.90.0.7-r4 failed.
    !!! Function src_compile, Line 140, Exitcode 2
    !!! (no error message)

    anyone know whats going on ?

    during the bootstrap process you want to be pretty conservative in your CFLAGS choices.. this is because some of the packages it compiles during the bootstrap are somewhat sensitive to the CFLAGS used.. i would try backing off of some of those CFLAGS... usually the optimizations will try to do something that breaks the compilation if the CFLAGS are too aggressive..
