:This is FreeBSD specific, but this server might be going to DFly soon. Also,
:I'd like to get a second opinion to the FreeBSD list.
:I'm running 4.11 on a server, and for the last week or so it has been
:spontaneously rebooting about once a day or so. It has 512M of memory.
:I ran memtest and it causes the reboot as well. I went and bought 2 sticks of
:memory, took out the old one, and put the new ones in. That gave me 1G. But
:a buildworld fails with signal 11 and memtest still causes the reboot.
:My other computer is your Windows box.
Make sure all your fans are working. If the BIOS has a way to set
the FSB and CPU frequencies, try slowing both down a bit and/or
relaxing the memory timing.
If that doesn't work then without further information I just don't know
(kinda hard if it's spontaniously rebooting without generating any
messages on the console!).
