WinJitter on AMD

    Apr 11 2006 | 9:32 pm
    Hi everyone, Have there been reports of Jitter not working well with AMD Opteron? I haven't found any. I can get more details later, but I'm curious if anything has been reported at all. Basically, after running a patch for some random amount of time, a fairly intense patch would crap out.
    Does onyone run Jitter on an AMD system?
    thanks, wes

      I haven't encountered any AMD specific issues on my dual Opteron machine which I've been developing on for a year and a half. Nor do I know of anything which should be AMD relevant unless an object uses Intel processor specific instructions (which we don't in the standard distro).
      If it's not just memory corruption (which by luck doesn't expose itself on another machine), then the first things I'd look at is scheduler backlog, and the windows screen saver or login screen turning on (known issue which can lead to crashes).

      funning jitter on an AMD 64x2 3800+ (2.0ghz dual core). works fine. sometimes get weird non-reproducible crashes while editing patches, but nothing to mysterious while using a patch.
