      Hi again John... no, I'm not married to the idea of using jnos. Matter of fact I would be interested in trying BPQ32.  I will give it a whirl.
      Best,

      Ok, Jerome.
       
      Do you particularly want to use nos? There is now a Linux version of BPQ32.

      Thanks John... yes, I kept a copy of the binary that was made with all the debugging info in it, so that I could run gdb if necessary. I'm not a coder, so I'm not sure how much sense the gdb output is going to make to me, but I will try.

      I'm getting more positive that the problem is in the 'mbox' code, as I hashed out all the setup info for the mbox, and it ran solid over night. No forwarding this way, but it didn't drop out to the OS either.

      Again thanks for your suggestion..

      Jerome,
       
      I can't help with jnos specifically, but I suggest  you run the program under the debugger (gdb). This should at least show where the program is failing, and if it is always in the same place.
       
      gdb jnos2
      r
       
      if it stops within gdb, the bt copmmand will display a stack trace.This may give a cluse, or at least give you something to report to the jnos developer.
       
      To get the most info, jnos has to be compiled with the -g option - check the makefile to see if it is set.
       
      73, John

      Hi... I've been working on this for over a month, and I have finally
      run out of things to try, so I need some help. I've also posted this to the Nos-BBS list.

      The Problem:

      I have compiled from source (all defaults), various versions of Jnos for
      the RP and they all compile without error (lot's of warnings, but no
      fatal errors) and each produces a working executable. All jnos functions
      seem to work, but after anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours (and
      sometimes several days), Jnos crashes back to the operating system. It
      never hangs the pi, it just unceremoniously exits.

      In an effort to bisect the problem (hardware vs. software), here's what
      I've tried:

      1. Power supplies, various: from a 5v/1A wall wart to a lab-grade
      regulated supply connected to the GPIO 5v pins; no difference.

      2. Burn a new SD card (tried various brands); no difference.

      3. Examined the jnos logs to see if there was a pattern to the
      activities before the crash. Results don't seem to indicate anything
      obvious. The actual crash could be many minutes after a logged event. Of
      course not all events are logged, so that fact that all Mailbox activity
      shows up a lot before a crash, can't be pinned to anything. That said,
      there's one command that kicks jnos right out to the OS pronto and that
      is 'mbox kick'. Bang jnos quits. Maybe this is the big clue?

      4. apt-get update -> apt-get upgrade; then recompile and try new binary;
      no difference.

      5. download latest image, burn new card and repeat 4 above; no
      difference

      6. Remove USB peripherals one by one and rebooting; no difference.

      7. Move jnos from SD card to memory stick; no difference.

      8. Run in GUI terminal/Run without GUI in linux terminal; no difference.

      What I have not tried:

      1. I have not swapped out the pi

      2. I have not run any memory (ram) diagnostics as I can't find any to
      run. Help here?

      In conclusion, I have no indication from running different apps on the
      pi, that the pi is faulty -- no flakyness at all, except when running
      jnos. Of course I don't have any apps that continually exercise the pi
      the way jnos does. If you know of any I could try, please let me know.

      As well, is there anything I can try to change in the compilation
      process that might be useful? Has anyone gotten their pi and jnos to work together?

      Thanks for any suggestions!

        Hi John, and others following my original thread:

        Just to let you know that I was able to locate where jnos was crashing; it was at the start of each forward cycle that I initiated. I have supplicated myself before the wizard and hope that he will respond.

        My work around in the meantime was to change my forward file so that I did not poll my forwarding partners. That has worked now since yesterday. If they initiate a forward cycle everything is fine and the system is stable. Not exactly a fix, but all is operational with the Pi and jnos to an extent where it's almost 100%.

        I noticed that in low traffic times, it would crash exactly every 15 minutes by itself. 15 minutes was the start of my forward cycle time.  This aligns with my original clue, where I saw that manually starting a forward cycle crashed jnos.

        Sill going to try the debugger to see what I can learn from that.

                Thanks for your suggestions re the files John. I did a complete clean out and reorg of what was in the spool directory. Some of the stuff was from the early 90's. I did likewise for for the root jnos directory. I don't know which was the problem, but at the end of the process, everything worked flawlessly.

                My face is red.  Originally to build the Pi system, I copied over all the  configuration files from my working x86 based system. Everything worked there with no problems. Thus my assumption that if it worked on the x86 system, and the compilation for the Pi  was OK (no errors), then the config files should work on the Pi. That was my thinking.

                I can't speak to what actually happened, but something did.  It's all good now.

                Hi JJ... I'm not sure what you're getting at here. I don't index anything. The mail files are automatically deleted after several days.
                Can I draw you out a bit on what you're saying?

                    The failure on heavy netrom use/load speaks to not 'nuff ram. What does 'top' say under those conditions wrt ram use? and CPU use?

                    Maybe $39 more for a new pi solves the problem?

                    Just a thought <g>.
