- Subject: Long Shot, Mostly OT Compiler / System Crash Issue
I'm building (trying to build) Cygwin CLISP, and doing so is tickling a
problem in my system. I think the problem is hardware related, but up until
now the symptom showed no discernable pattern.
Now that I'm building CLISP, I'm finding that the problem is triggered
repeatedly at the same point in compilation.
The symptom is a simple hang / lock-up with the system's reset button being
the only out.
I've run the compiler under "strace" once and the last reported action is a
"write" system call.
Can anyone offer any suggestions about how to try to ascertain the problem
(with an eye toward finding a work-around, of course). I can't really
afford to replace the system right now and apart from this repeatable hang,
the system is reliable enough for me to live with, even if I dislike its
instability it a lot.
