Misterious crash

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I was playing 0ad (alpha 23) online with a friend and his game has been crashing for no good reason a few times. So I advised him to start 0ad from a terminal, so he could get some debbugging info in case a new crash happened. And it did happen. Here is the screenshot of the terminal info just after the crash (20 something minutes after starting I think):

Any idea on what this could be?

"killed"!?

 

I was hosting the game (Linux), he was the client (Linux) and there were 2 computer bot enemies.

 

Thank you!

Could your friend please upload the interestinglog.html and crashlog.txt (commonly found in ~/.config/0ad/logs folder, see trac) from right after such a crash?

0AD most likely starved system memory plus swap so the Kernel sent a Kill(9) signal to the process terminating it. And yes, the Kernel only does this in the most dire of cases.

One of these three should help figure out why. The first one is the most likely. I am not sure to be honest.
 

dmesg -T| grep -E -i -B100 'killed process'

/var/log/kern.log

/var/log/messages

Good luck fixing that.

Not necessarily. Since the kernel over commits memory, there are specific circumstances where it might not lag at all.

OOM kill is the best case scenario. Without logs, cant really say I suppose.
