Systester uses the hard disk only to create simple text log files. This happens only if the user asks for. As far as i know, it is impossible to crash a hard disk that way.

Systester is a free and open source project distributed under the terms of the GPL. If you think it is responsible for your hard disk crash, you just have to indicate the lines of source code that may cause a hard disk crash.

Otherwise try not to buy shitty hardware and spread lies.

It is a hardware failure for sure. It may be one of your DIMMs, or the cache, or the CPU itself.

The DIMMs are the #1 suspect.

Systester depends on gmp. I am sure you'll find it in your distro's repo if it is not already installed.

Try to run:

qmake-qt4 systester.pro

If it succeeds just run:

make

and after this try:

./systester

I just uploaded the patch version 1.0.3 with an updated configure script. Don't forget to add GMP in your dependency list.

Ok! I will make the changes in a couple of days. You may add ~alpha to the supported platforms. Systester runs under Linux/Alpha just fine recognizing correctly the CPU family and the operational frequency.
