I did an update to pybombs two days ago, and immediately gnuradio got to
around 57% completion and just hung my Ubuntu 13.10 computer so hard, I
couldn’t get it to respond to ctrl-alt-del for over half and hour.
I tried again after doing a force rebuild on gnuradio and it was worse.
long-hit the power button to do a reset.
I checked the pybombs defaults and it is makewidth = 4, but it certainly
acts like it is ignoring this and doing
. Further symptoms include a nonstop, hard green LED on disk writes on
GB system. I have never seen it actually go to a major use of virtual
memory (if that is what is happening) until now.
I went into src/gnuradio/build and did a manual make -j4 and it worked
perfectly, thus my diagnosis.
