FreeBSD 4.3-RELEASE: Various applications core-dump

FreeBSD 4.3-RELEASE: Various applications core-dump

Post by Thomas Amrei » Wed, 06 Jun 2001 00:36:43



Hi,

I installed FreeBSD 4.3-RELEASE.
Various software core-dumps on my machine and I have no clue why (The
OpenSSH daemon provided with FreeBSD4.3, Apache 1.3.20, . ...). After reboot
other or same software core-dumps, sometimes software works again till next
reboot.
BIOS memory-checking does not report any defective RAM.
I have an ASUS P/I-55T2P4 motherboard, Matrox Millenium 2064W graphics
adapter, Linksys LNE100TX NIC, IDE Harddisk and CDROM (see dmesg).

Anyone knows what's wrong here?

Thanks for help,

Tom

It is your memory, most likely.

BIOS memory check isn't worth the bits it prints on the screen. Try it with
better memory and see if it improves. Sig 11 indicates a hardware problem.

BIOS memory check just finds if a chip is in the socket.  I can
verify that.

If nothing else go to /usr/ports/sysutils/memtest and try that.

You didn't say how much memory.  I have some tests [not on BSD]
that will take almost 24 hours to run on my 512MB RAM.

You could also see if a local shop has a HW memory tester.  Those
will take about 3-4 minutes to run on a 64MB chip and are about
the best for this.

Sig 11 does not ALWAYS indicate a hardware problem.  Sometimes it
indicates that you need to do a (in csh):

        limit stacksize <large number here>

especially during gcc compiles of some particularly large and troublesome
source code.

However, for the problem by the original poster, I think memory hardware
really is suspect.

I am running 4.3 Release which was CVSup'd from 4.0 and 4.2 with no problems.
I am using the same MB as you, with the AMD K6-500/32MB Ram, a Promise Ultra
100 controller/WD ATA-66 HD - and it runs fine. My gut "feeling" here is look
at your RAM hardware. This looks like the kind of thing shakey memory would
produce. (Bad MB being the other most likely) Good Luck - Mine runs great!
