I've got a ppc box with 2GB of ram, running 2.6.9.
If I run a few instances of memory chewing programs, eventually the
OOM-killer kicks in. At that point, the machine locks up for about 10
seconds while deciding what to kill.
OOM killing is known to be broken in 2.6.9, specifically it kills things
even when the machine isn't out of memeory and/or kills the "wrong"
things when it is. See threads assim for more details.
The OOM Killer is working properly again in 2.6.10-rc2-mm4. Could you
try that kernel and report whether it fixed your problems too?
Hmm...downloaded 2.6.9, patched to 2.6.10-rc2, patched to 2.6.10-rc2-mm4. Tried
building and got the following error:
