dmalloc doesn't build - and consumes all resources in fail
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:01 EDT
When trying to rebuild it, it slows the system down to a halt while consuming
all available memory (256+512 swap). It then gets killed by the OOM killer in
the kernel. Upgrading to 4.8.2 doesn't help. The step dying is
./dmalloc_t -s -t 10000
dmalloc is crap.
Don't run the test <shrug>.
Just skipping the test is no way useful, since it will die the same way
any time you use dmalloc for something.
I've actually changed glibc this time, since
if (__builtin_expect (worklist != NULL, 0))
is IMHO faster in the common case than
but dmalloc will break into pieces next time any glibc internals get changed.
This workaround is in glibc-2.2.5-28+.
