Maybe you used the wrong deodorant?

The SIG11 error is more often the result of flakey/marginal hardware (although it could be a problem with the source/lib/header files).  Do you have the linux kernel source and header files installed?  (assuming you're running a GNU/Linux variant, of course)  What happens when you try and compile a kernel?

You may want to read the SIG11 FAQ (it should be in your /usr/doc/FAQ directory).  You can find the latest version at:
