SubjectRe: OOM-Killer in 2.4.11pre4
> to test the oom killer you should try to run out of memory sometime.

I used a test program with an endless dummy=new char[1024] loop.

This program triggered the allocation failure with 2.4.10 but with 2.4.11pre4
this program is killed by the OOM-Killer and not by the VM.
Bytheway,I had this problem without highmem - only 512 MB, and my problem is
gone with 2.4.11pre4.
At least this bug is solved. There is nothing more I wanted to report.
Good work :-)
