r I see is error 2.  Somewhere further back is error 1.  That is the first trigger and may point to a problem.  I usually go back 20 or 30 lines before error 1 just to be sure I went back far enough.  I have a 4 core CPU here. My only other suggestion is to make sure you have not run out of space, either hard drive mount point or memory if using tmpfs.  That can cause a strange error because it fails wherever it runs out of space.  Sometimes it fails at different spots too.

thers, I wish progress had more options.  Sometimes, I don't want a bloated monster of a program.  If anything, I may want to add things that improve security but has no other "features" included.  Then on others, I may not care much about security but want features.  Having a bare program and the ability to add features, that allows everyone to have what they want.  They can pick a huge bloated program or a bare metal barely gets the job done program.  Just thinking out loud.  ;-) Dale :-)  :-)

rry about security issues with something like Kwrite or Okular but I do worry about it with things like web browsers that I use to make purchases or check on financial websites such as banks etc.  I want those to be secure as possible even if it means updating each week.  This is interesting.  Others who use palemoon may at least want to be aware of it.  Dale :-)  :-)

?  If so, which one?? If you are upgrading and finding solutions, have you found a replacement for Tab Utilities, Tab Groups Manager and any others, since that may help others on this list.  Thanks. Dale :-)  :-)

E flag.  I'm assuming that would be for gcc.  Posting link to forum to see if it makes more sense to you.
