I did some testing to see if I could reproduce the strange killed processes
which I experienced during build world on my 256MB RPI.
I disabled the swap partition on my USB drive and did some testing with the
"stress" program from ports:
stress --vm 1 --vm-bytes 200M --vm-keep
results in dmesg:
pid 664 (stress), uid 1000, was killed: out of swap space
Next I did a
stress --vm 1 --vm-bytes 150M --vm-keep
and a few moments later:
pid 606 (sshd), uid 0: exited on signal 11
pid 610 (cron), uid 0: exited on signal 11 (core dumped)
This should NOT happen.
Another problem is that i tried a large zmodem upload on the serial console
of a 10MB file.
Minicom and sz on the sending site, rz (from lrzsz from ports) on the
This works, but if I run a compile in another ssh session during the
transfer then the
transfer hangs and the serial console will no longer handle any input.
console shell results in a new getty but it cannot receive any input. It's
data > /dev/console does show output however.
I use a kernel from a current tree a few days old.
Can others reproduce these problems?
