1. I could not sleep and installed the normal Python version and 
installed it with gcc. But the situation didn't change.

2. Has got anybody any idea how to  write a small script which tests my 
processor for 30 minutes. As I wrote, I wrote a small Python script 
which does claiming memory for 30 minutes. "Top" then tells me something 
like that: processor 5% ;  memory 99%.

Someone guessed that maybe my processor got too hot. Therefore: what 
about a small script of the form: processor 99% ; memory 5%.

That could at least clarify whether the processor becomes to hot after 
beeing used without breaks.

Writing the memory consumption script was easy, but I do not have any 
clue how to write a processor consumption script.
