Question: How to compute an extension of finite field?

Hi EveryOne!

In the answer of the question "How to find roót of polynomial in finite field and extension finite field ", @Carl Love helped me to find roots of polynimial in finite field and extension finite field (At URL OR

However, with matrix M: =< x^4+x^3+x^6+x^7+x, 1+x^2+x^4+x^5+x^6, 1+x+x^2+x^3, x^7+x^6+x^5+x^4;

                                   x^7+x^5+x^4+x^3, x^6+x^4+x^2+1, x^4+x^3+x^6+x^7+x^2+x+1, 1+x^2+x^3+x^4+x^5; 

                                   x^7+x^5+x^2, x^7+x^5+x^3+x^2+1, x^2+x+x^6, x^2+x^3+x^5;
                                   x^4+x^3+x^6+1, 1+x^2+x^3+x^4, x^6+x^5+x^4+x^3, x^7+x^3 >;

and GF(2^8)/f(x)=x^8 + x^7 +x^6 + x +1 (i.e ext1:= Z^8+Z^7+Z^6+Z+1), then program don't run!

Please help me! Thanks so much.
