Enabling multiple CPU core cuases system instability during builds etc.
|Reported by:||stargatefan||Owned by:||axeld|
I need to know how to properly log this, as of late I have been having alot of problems with building haiku, lots of crash, incomplete build, files not being found etc. Out of sheer random curiosity " trying to test things " to look for correlation, I found that by using pulse to disable 5 of the 6 cpu core in my system, that I can now build haiku, on haiku.
I want to say I started noticing regressions with this about 4-6 weeks ago, I figured it was that haiku didn't like my hardware or some other bizzare problem. anyways, I have sucessfully completed my first build without a gdb or KDL in about 4 weeks so something is afoot, I have checked the backtraces etc and all the library call problems I have seen aren't really a problem. I can find verify and confirm the librarys work
this led me to replacing what I assumed was bad ram. If you pull some other tickets I have posted about similar problem comments were made about possiable hardware problems. I have replaced everything in the PC at this point, still I have random problems etc.
So I would like to help find this bug, please tell me what tools, utilitys,etc that need to be applied and what tests need to be performed to discover the issue. I think the issue is predominately tied to AMD cpu's and the memory controller.
Tell me what I need to do to help you developers find this bug and I will do it quickly.
