*What* errors did you get?  It's extremely important to show
them. Otherwise, it's almost certain nobodoy will be able to help you.

Rule-of-thumb #1 in problem reporting: Describe in as much detail as
possible what actually *happens*, instead of listing up what didn't.

Did you compare the three source files you typed in for equality?  You
should do that.  If compiling the *same* source file repeatedly
sometimes fails and sometimes doesn't, that's an almost sure sign of
hardware instability on your box --- usually bad RAM chips.
