Is there someone out there who has a stable kernel for a R3k DECstation?
With stable I mean that it can sustain this little script:
cd <linux source dir>
for i in 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10;
do date > ~/compile.$i;
make clean >> ~/compile.$i 2>&1;
nice -n 19 make -j 10 boot >> ~/compile.$i 2>&1;
date >> ~/compile.$i;
uptime >> ~/compile.$i;
The kernels I tried are build with cross-gcc 2.7.2, cross-egcs 1.0.2 and
native egcs 1.0.2-9 (rpm from ftp.linux.sgi.com) and binutils 2.8.1. I
also tried Karels kernel. They all let the system silently die. This is
without using swap. Or am I asking something impossible?
