Recently I've had cause to run memtest on some relatively modern
(Haswell, Haswell refresh, and Kaby Lake R). On all three systems the
memtest86+ provided with the Fedora Workstation Live media failed.
On the Haswell and Haswell refresh machines it froze shortly after
starting. It didn't matter if the test was run in 'Safe Mode', or with SMP.
On the Kaby Lake R machine it causes the machine to reboot before
It works fine on an older Wolfdale Core 2 Duo.
I've tried this with both the Workstation Live 31 and a 32 Beta
Has anyone else seen this? Should there be a test case? Should it
be dropped since memtest86+ appears to be dead upstream, and doesn't
support UEFI (and possibly doesn't work)?
I long ago switched to free version of https://www.memtest86.com/
with DDR4 or UEFI.
Evolution as taught in public schools is religion, not science.
