The 6.8 branch is no longer being developed, so we won't be fixing this bug, I'm afraid. If you are unable to build a more recent GHC then you can download a binary distribution, or perhaps get a binary from your Linux distribution.

If the error is different each time, it may be that your hardware is faulty.
