This one seems to work for me. The current build logs in cvs-ghc show it's working on their x86_64 machine but not on the i386 one. I've tried it on OSX and an i386 Ubuntu VM and can't get it to fail.

Can you run the compile directly and post the error message? What platform are you on?

comment:3 Changed 6 years ago by

I'm on i686, linux. I'm just building a new HEAD to test some of my code, will see whether it works then. In the meantime I'll try the last one again, will be a few minutes.

<command line>: the dph-par package is not installed.

That is from the make install'ed ghc, the inplace stage2 is unhappily compiling at ~60% memory at the moment, might be necessary to kill it soon.

Yup, had to kill it. Used more than 1G of virtual memory (~600M resident), my poor HD loudly complained about swapping and the whole computer almost ground to a halt.

Compiling WordsVect was at about three and a half minutes CPU time and more than twenty wall clock time. I suppose the test driver got impatient and killed it too.

On an otherwise relatively idle box, with the additional +RTS -M700M -RTS command line flag, the compile went through, but it took about six minutes. timeout-killed in the testsuite, I bet.

Btw, the executable weighs in at 34.3MB. Compiling with -O instead of -Odph is a bit more benign, but stil abysmal.

comment:7 Changed 6 years ago by rl

Optimisation of DPH programs is currently a bit broken but we are working on it. It is well possible that fixing that particular problem will also fix the test.

As to the code size, that's almost certainly caused by #4387.

Hadn't any timeouts for dph-words-opt in a long time. Though DPH optimisation is still slow and takes a lot of memory, it's gotten better. I think this one can be closed for now.
