i have new machine (Celeron 1200, 512MB RAM, 2*80GB HDD in RAID1) that i
want to

i tried to run
make -j 200

on kernel sources and i got "Memory fault" after a while

and the memory fault is always in the same place.

make -j 100 works fine, even if i do it concurently on 3 different kernel
compile directories so machine is even more loaded.

tried many different loads including compiling+high disk I/O,
compiling+RAID1 rebuild, adding dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/null bs=128M
and it seems that machine has good hardware.

is it bug in make?

i set ulimit values enough for sure (4000 processes, 15000 files, 2048
stack, 512MB memory)
