Does it fail on the same test every time? What is the topology of your
computer setup?

Off the top of my head, the SIGSEGV signal *could* be indicative of a
memory hardware problem. If this is failing at random points, I'd
suggest burning an image of memtest86+ ( ) to a
CD and then booting the machine in question from that CD. This will run
a series of memory tests on the machine and should give an indication if
there is a memory problem.
