Re: sparc / Problems with 3.2-kernel
Andreas Barth a écrit :
today I tried to resurrect our buildd on schroeder (which is from
architecture sparc). While trying to do so, I had a couple of strange
behaviours like vi freezing after 20-30 seconds, or I couldn't about
tail with ctrl+c or suspend with ctrl+z. This didn't change after a
reboot. Machine was running our official 3.2-kernel.
After Martin rebooted the machine into oldstables 2.6.32 kernel,
things are working as they should, and the buildd is up again.
Question: Is this a known issue? How can we get a fix for that? (I
would assume DSA will consider it a non-option to not be able to
upgrade to our default kernels.)
I have seen same freezes on Blade 2000 (2 * US III+/900 Cu), on U5 (US
IIi/440), but not on a server that run with four US IIIi and not on a
T1000 (sun4v/US T1). I have tested 3.2 debian kernels and official ones
and both hang. I suppose there is another strange bug with special MMU.
2.6.32 is stable but on sparc64, 3.2 is not. I have not tested newer
