Linux emulation freezes machine after heavy usage of cpu and memory
After randomly time, since begin cross-compiling within linux emulation environment. Machine totally freeze. I not see any kind of useful clues like memory dumps or entering into internal kernel debug DDB* ...
(* remark:: I configured dump device and ddb kernel support ;-))
P.S. Products of Wind River with which I work has not native support for FreeBSD.
This problem is important for me! I worked from many time like that and after upgrade from FreeBSD-8 to FreeBSD-9 I faced with this strange problem ...
Compile into linux emulation some big source tree or I guess to see similar result when you get all physical memory and cpu time.
Install virtualbox or qemu. Install inside it some linux distribution.
Export your home directory through NFS and mount from linux distro home dir ;)
And all your further linux related tasks you should execute into linux guest :>
That is fast and ugly workaround solution ... :):)
