signal 11 is usually a hardware problem. Does it always happen at the
same place.

5.0 is the development branch, and isn't a good place for a newbie to
start. I'd recommend getting 4.7, or waiting a bit and getting 4.8
when it's released, and trying to install that. Not only is it more
likely to work, but the group answering questions has much more
cumulative experience with it, so is more likely to be able to help
you.
