Angry rebooting during builds


Anyone have any ideas,

Everytime I try to build a program, or for that matter try to rebuild my kernel. The build progresses for a while and then in the middle of it my computer just reboots anyone have any ideas. It runs fine the rest of the time just reboots while I am trying to build any programs.

Running redhat 9.0 on AMD 2800 MSI KT6 Delta

Thanks for the help

John

Heat? Any chance your box is getting too hot and reboots? Do you have anything like that setup in the BIOS to save your system from getting burnt to a crisp? If feasible, try adding more fans, maybe even some water cooling and see if that helps it. Short of that, try building something smaller...

Welcome to LQ

Cool

sounds like the cpu is getting to hot, compiling is very cpu intensive. also *could* be a defect in ram, then when gcc uses lots of memory for compile it flakes when hitting that section of ram (doubt it, cool your cpu first)

Thanks everyone I checked my CPU temp its through the roof. Time to add more fans and change the heat sink from AMD stock to something a little more serious. My wallet and I both thank you.

the internet is littered with threads and mails about this, whenever you have trouble compiling anything anywhere check your cpu fan and temp. My p4 2.2 normally runs at 86 degrees farenheight, when I compile it jumps slowly to 137. it never gets any hotter than that.
