1. Check you RAM with memtest86+. 2. Drop your CFLAGS to "-march=opteron -O2 -pipe". Extreme CFLAGS wont improve your performance anyway and I'm a bit suprised you're using such CFLAGS on a server. 3. You aren't supposed to use a x86 profile on a x86_64-pc-linux-gnu system. Change to an amd64 profile instead. -- gentoo-amd64@g.o mailing list
