[Bug 257314] FBSD 13 crash after some KDE parts crash supposing out of swap space

https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=257314 --- Comment #22 from Mark Millard <firstname.lastname@example.org> --- (In reply to Michael from comment #20) > certainly it is not really kernel related because the underlying OS is working still fine No. The kills are initiated by the kernel --and only by the kernel. The OS is doing the kills for failing the conditions for allowing continued operation of all the processes. The kernel is also what reports: "swap_pager: indefinite wait buffer:" messages. I would like the patched kernel to be used in order to find out exactly --and for sure-- which condition in the kernel is failing to allow continued operation of all processes. I've no objection to combining such with an increased vm.pageout_oom_seq value assigned at boot: A) If it still does a kill, we learn from the messages what the condition was. B) If it no longer does a kill, we then know that the condition that had been failing was the test involving vm.pageout_oom_seq . -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
