pypy translation failures
2012-07-06 05:07:27 GMT
Hello, I am having difficulties translating Pypy, but googling searching did not reveal any mentions of similar problems, so I am not sure what to do.
I am not able to successfully translate Pypy, using any combination of options I have tried. Here are my results so far.
Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit
Trying to translate pypy sandbox from latest source release (I can find the actual hash number if necessary).
I used PYPY_GC_MAX_DELTA=200MB and loop_longevity=300 as suggested to reduce memory usage, along with -O2 and --sandbox
The translator produced an executable, but attempting to run this executable with or without pypy_interact.py leads to an immediate termination with the message
Fatalerror during initialization out of memory
Windows 7 64 bit
Same steps as above except without max delta, and using the 1.9 source release.
The sandbox again fails with the Fatalerror out of memory. It also produces some weird characters before terminating which I'm guessing are the marshalled stdout from the sandbox.
Windows 7 64 bit
Attempt to translate plain Pypy, with -Ojit but no loop longevity. Translation fails partway through with a MemoryError despite several GB of free memory.
I have tried both CPython 2.7 and prebuilt Pypy binaries to do the translating, and nothing I do will work. I can't find any mentions of others experiencing similar problems, but the fact that the problems show up for me with multiple versions on multiple machines with different OSs indicates that something serious is wrong. Does anyone have any idea what the problem might be?
