Well, turned out that the case fans were not plugged in which was causing issues when the server would start doing anything processor intensive causing it to overheat.

There are no oom-killer entries in the log just stuff like segfault at 54 ip b7619ba8 sp bf9c3380 error 4 I'm thinking it's a hardware problem which is going to be a pain to track down. This is a physical server with dual Athlon MP 2000+ processors and 1.5GB of RAM. It runs fairly stably but segfaults during compiles.

Thanks, that worked well to gobble up memory and start swapping. I guess my segfaults are caused by something else... probably hardware :/
