"Illegal Operation" or "Illegal instruction"?  If the latter, are you sure
it's a K6-2?  Usually this indicates that the CPU is not an i686 with MMX
(which is what the binary is currently built for).

Send the contents of /proc/cpuinfo.  Most likely, you'll need to rebuild the
source package (it's easy).
