1. Clock speeds and system freeze-ups...
I'd looked at some items in the newsgroups about segment violations and
"signal 6" and "signal 11" internal compiler errors having to do with
overheating Pentiums. I'd had similar things happen, in addition to
the system freezing up.
The guy who put my PC together had the clock jumpered up to 120 MHz and
the Pentium is rated to 75 MHz. Of course, he did this with my
and he wasn't trying to bilk me. Anyway, it works fine with Windoze,
and Linux, until I really push it with some real multitasking, or try
to build a kernel. Basically, I was in denial: "CAN'T be the hardware!
It would've showed up a long time ago! Yeah, I KNOW it's pushing the
envelope already but..."
I'm stepped back to 100 MHz, and things are purring along.
So, lesson learned for me. It's not a black or white case whether
things will work when you crank up the clock speed...some spooky
things can happen.
Just though I'd pass this on.
Kudos to Thomas Lostaunau for hitting the nail right on the head.
