U1E hangs on "make" under Debian latest stable.
I have a pair of apparently identical Sun Ultrasparc 1E workstations
with the following specs:
U1E #1: 200MHz, 256MB, 9.1GB, a Creator 3D card, etc.
U1E #2: 200MHz, 128MB, 9.1GB, a C6 8-bit card, etc.
After installing the stable debian release 2.4.18 on each machine via
net-boot (I set up a SS5 as a tftp server to do this) I can get the U1Es
booting by themselves and acting nicely. In terms of installed
software, they should be nearly identical.
U1E #1 will always hang during a configure/make/make install procedure.
In particular, during "make" of libxml-2.5.6, or bash-2.05a, the machine
hangs, becomes unresponsive to input, and requires a hard power off to
reboot. After this the disk must be fsck'd to reboot.
U1E #2 does not hang during any "make" procedures I have tried.
I will do some more research to find out where in "make" #1 hangs, (i.e.
in gcc, sh, make, etc.) but first I would like to know if anyone has
experienced a problem like this before. Could it be hardware related?
Please let me know if any more information could be helpful.
