While attempting to get my desktop machine (x86, pentium 100) up to -current
again, I decided to NFS-mount /usr/src from my laptop, which is must faster
(again, x86, PII-266). The laptop, in case it matters, was also running a
1.3K kernel built from sources supped the first few days of March. (I re-
built the kernel on the laptop too, just for good measure).
Previous to all this, I had succesfully done a 'make build' on my laptop,
so all I wanted was to install the built binaries on the desktop machine.
CD'ing to /usr/src and doing a 'make install' or 'make includes' on the desk-
top machine inevitably led to the machine locking hard at some point in the
build. I rebuilt the desktop machines' kernel several times, with the final
kernel being from sources SUP'd on 3/6 (hoping each time I sup'd that some
bug would be fixed that made it all better)I. Replacing the kernel on the
desktop machine with a newer one did not fix it -- it would still lock up
so tight that the only recourse was to hit the reset switch...
The desktop has an old SMC 8013EPC ISA card, the laptop a cheapo PCMCIA
The interesting thing is that cd'ing into each of the subdirs of /usr/src
make doing the 'make install'/'make includes' seemed to work (I say seemed,
because I didn't descend into directories that had already been completed,
so the total work wasn't as much as a whole-tree 'make install'/'make includes'
Anyone seem anything similar?? Should I file a PR? Am I just losing my mind?
