HOW TO BURN IN A COMPUTER SYSTEM USING FREEBSD


    ASSUMPTIONS:

    You have already installed FreeBSD.  If not, here is a procedure to do so:

    How to Install FreeBSD

    RUNNING THE MAKES

  1. cd /usr/src

  2. make world; make clean; make world; make clean; make world; make clean; make world; make clean; make world; make clean

  3. My idea here is to run 'make world' and 'make on XFree86' concurrently, thus stressing the system.  Further: Run as many 'make worlds' as you like, but generally five or six are enough.

  4. Press Alt-F2 to switch to another terminal

  5. login as root

  6. cd /usr/ports/x11-servers/XFree86-4-Servers

  7. make (it will tell you it doesn't have all the files, and will download the ones it needs - this takes less than five minutes on my system.  Then the make will run - this is a long make, and will probably take four or five hours.) (NOTE: If you have had a crash and are rerunning the make on XFree86, you should probably run a 'make clean' first.)

  8. Once this process is finished, press Alt-F1 to go back to the first window

  9. If the multiple 'make world; make clean' processes (started above) have finished, run them again

  10. Press Alt-F2

  11. cd /usr/ports/x11/kde3

  12. make (it will tell you it doesn't have all the files, and will download the ones it needs - this takes less than five minutes on my system. Then the make will run - this is a long make, and will probably take four or five hours.)

  13. At this point, the system has now survived simultaneous makes of the world, XFree86, and kde3.  It should be stable.  I generally overclock the FSB by 5% to 10% and move the RAM into more agressive timings, before running the above tests.  If these pass, I reset the system to normal settings and figure I have a stable system.  I don't sell any machines that won't survive the above tests with anything less than a 5% overclock.

    This tests the power supply, motherboard, CPU, RAM, hard drive (not completely of course), CDROM, and NIC.  So any failures that crop up after this are probably due to video or the Windows software issues.
