I just upgraded my machine to an SMP system over the weekend, using
dual Celerons on a BP6 motherboard. Linux runs perfectly happily
on it, unless I'm compiling the kernel, which is rather odd. I know
the kernel compile is one of the most stressful things you can do
to the compiler, but getting sig11's *only* during the kernel compile
is a little odd.
The Celerons in question are 366's, overclocked to 550. They're
perfectly stable and running cool (as in temperature :-), and run
without any problems.
The odd thing is that I can compile a kernel perfectly well, using
the same CPU's at the same speed, when compiling *from* a non-SMP
kernel. When I boot to an SMP aware kernel and try re-compiling the
kernel, it fails with sig11's after a while (it does however manage
to compile a good few files first.)
I'll drop the CPU's back to the rated 366 this evening and try an
SMP compile again, but in the meantime I was wondering if anyone else
out there has experience of this type of error, and any general
advice about SMP problems, recompiling apps for SMP use, etc., etc.
