:) Need you ask how I made out? :-/

Scribus fell over because my qt didn't have threads support. So I
started recompiling qt. That falls over every 10 minutes with something
like this

g++ -c -pipe -Wall -W -O2 -D_REENTRANT -fPIC -DQT_SHARED -DQT_NO_DEBUG
-I../../../X11R6/include/freetype2 -I/usr/local/qt/include
-I../../../X11R6/include -I../../../X11R6/include
-I.moc/release-shared-mt/ -I/usr/local/qt/mkspecs/linux-g++ -o
.obj/release-shared-mt/qdom.o xml/qdom.cpp
xml/qdom.cpp: In method `QDomDocumentPrivate::QDomDocumentPrivate(const
xml/qdom.cpp:5553: Internal compiler error.
xml/qdom.cpp:5553: Please submit a full bug report.
xml/qdom.cpp:5553: See <URL:http://www.gnu.org/software/gcc/bugs.html>
for instructions.
cpp0: output pipe has been closed
make[2]: *** [.obj/release-shared-mt/qdom.o] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/qt-x11-free-3.0.5/src'
make[1]: *** [sub-src] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/qt-x11-free-3.0.5'
make: *** [init] Error 2

I hit 'make' again, and it's off for another 10 minutes. It's the same
tar.bz2 that I compiled earlier, the memory is recently tested good, and
the compiler has never done this before. I'm using qt-x11-free-3.0.5,
and gcc-2.95-3, cos I never updated from lfs-3.3.

And every time I switch on or off my desk lamp, the pc reboots :-((. It
seems the bulb or the starter is gone awol. I personally suspect senile
dementia in the bulb ;-).
