Signal 11 under Linux is almost always a hardware problem, in my
experience.  Try running "memtest" on the machine.  I think that out of 20
or 30 instances of it I've seen over the years, maybe one if any that
weren't definitely hardware problems.

That is probably not what is wanted.  Those RPMs aren't suitable for uses
like inclusion on Fedora, so there wouldn't be much benefit there.  The
tools I'm working on are basically just running "python setup.py build"
anyway -- most of the coolness about them is what they are doing to detect
failures or hangs and to safely run third-party applications without
compromising the system.

So, probably the next step would be to *MANUALLY* build an RPM for Tahoe
and start the process of getting it included into Fedora.  I can help with
that when you're ready.  It's an involved but not overly difficult process.
