I've been trying to make world on a friend's machine but I have been getting the dreaded signal 11. The compile fails at different points each time, so I am assuming that it is a hardware problem. (it's an old machine; a P-200)
I wanted to test the memory (without plugging simms in and out) to see if I could prove it to be the culprit. I found memtest in ports/sysutils/memtest and installed it.
Umfortunately, when I run memtest, it is only able to allocate about 15M of memory to test. The only spot I can think to look is limit, but that doesn't seem to be holding me up:
datasize 524288 kbytes
stacksize 65536 kbytes
Does anyone know how to remove this limit and run memtest on a larger chunk of RAM? Any ideas to better isolate the problem?
Thanks in advance!
