Re: swap-related problems

1999-04-17 Thread Matthew Thyer
There is obviously a problem when all swap is exhausted. The only solution is to allow the additional memory *use* to succeed AND to warn the sysadmin that ALL virtual memory has been exhausted. The only way to do this is to be able to allocate extra virtual memory. I'd vote for a system that

Replying to myself... You'd have to be able to specify the absolute maximum memory use for a process to ensure you'd still kill run-aways (These would go first! regardless of the other rules maybe). Matthew Thyer wrote: There is obviously a problem when all swap is exhausted. The only

I have been investigating the silo overflow situation for some time. I can trigger them every time by the following action: - Run M.A.M.E. (Multi arcade machine emulator) and then try to download something. (I am using user mode ppp). I believe that the sio driver is its own worst enemy in that

I have been unable to use my Ultra DMA ATAPI CD-ROM since version 4 of Soren's ATAPI driver. Version 4 worked fine but since then (since at least version 6 I didn't try version 5) The system wont boot if I have my secondary IDE controller enabled. The system never completes its kernel

I have seen silo overflows on my serial port when I am using user mode ppp when using a PS/2 mouse and moused. Whilst downloading a large file I was able to cause multiple sio silo overflows by moving the mouse. I have stopped using moused since then (because of this) and can now download large

Silo overflows and MAME can someone else reproduce this problem ??

1999-05-03 Thread Matthew Thyer
This problem is easily reproducible. However to do so, you need a ROM image for an arcade game that the Multi Arcade Machine Emulator emulates as it wont do it without any roms in the directory /usr/local/lib/mame/roms. I am using xmame installed from the ports collection

My usermode ppp works fine normally as I can quite happily download 4 things at once without a single silo overflow (as I did last night) even when there is lots of disk activity or X11 activity. Note this problem is unrelated to newbus as it occurs both before and after those commits. Matthew

continous overflows on sio0 after I shutdown X no matter what I do, even when there is NOTHING else running, the moment I shutdown X and I move my mouse I get tons of overflows. I have no pppd running at all and no moused, any ideas? Cheers Andrew On Tue, 4 May 1999, Matthew Thyer

As far as I can tell, this is unrelated to newbus as the same actions would trigger this problem before and after newbus. I have been seeing this problem for many months (maybe years - but I've only recently identified a set of actions to reproduce it every time). The wierd thing is that I can
