I can install Descent3 in Gentoo 1.4rc1 just fine. I can even go through the training mission with everything working (including my joystick). But when I start the full campaign/mission, I'm dropped to the terminal window and get 'Signal 11 caught, aborting'. I heard this is memory problem, but I have 512MB RAM, and 64MB on the Video Card. This problem occured very rarely in Slackware, but when it did happen it was intermittent. With gentoo it happens everytime.

I find that sig11 almost always means that my system is overheating, i let it cool a little (kill seti) and everything is ok again.

It could also be
1) Your ram settigns in the bios if you ahve them set too agressivly, try defaults
2) Your overclocking your CPU, dont overclock.
3) You have multiple ram chips to make up the 512Meg and there is some slight in compatibility, try switching the ram chip in their slots.
