I did a thing.

I need help.

The situation: I have Chromium running with about 20 tabs opened + couple other apps. Now everytime I run "make -j4" without closing Chromium, the system freezes with kswapd taking all CPU resources. Sometimes the OOM killer intervenes, but in 95% of the cases it's faster to shut down holding the power button for 5 secs and just power the machine back on as the system rarely recovers itself from this busy waiting.

Now this wasn't always a problem with Kubuntus but I noticed this since about 14.10. I do have

vm.oom_kill_allocating_task = 1

in my /etc/sysctl.conf but it does not really help.

The question: How can I make the OOM killer actually do its job? I don't care if it kills Chromium or the compiler or even X, I would just like it to be effective without the need to power-off-and-back-on the whole machine.

Any tips?

Bought (the Windows only) Worms Armageddon in some recent Humble Bundle. Installed it through Wine-Steam and upon running the game, a popup appears saying "It would appear it's the first time you're running the game in Wine. Would like to enable couple special tweaks for better Wine performance?"

Much impressed. Works flawlessly. Good job Team17!

The fall in Toronto is really quite beautiful. Last week when walking to work I snapped couple photos and here's one you can use as a wallpaper to bring some of that yellowy outside inside, released only here under CC BY-SA 3.0.

Enjoy!
