Anything relevant in dmesg?  One issue I've seen with Pis is that if
you don't have a pretty solid wall wart you can get voltage issues
under heavy load.  That can lead to odd errors - as with RAM

You don't actually provide the model of Pi you're using, but it sounds
like an original Pi2B as I think that was the only ARM v7 Pi ever made
based on specs I can see online.  That makes it pretty old, which also
increases the odds that your power supply might not be working as well
as it used to.

I'm not really much of an ARM expert, but another thing you might
check is that you're building for the correct sub-arch.  I'm not sure
what distro you're using, but most should be taking care of that for
you assuming you installed the right image.
