I’m trying to build Marlin Firmware. And for some reason, it is killing my computer. The first symptom is that the compile is really slow. What should take 36sec to build can now take minutes or just doesn’t complete. The second is that opening many applications are now slower as well. As an example, if I try to open Task Manager, it takes minutes to open, if it ever does. Teams will lose the network connection.
I have PlatformIO Core 5.2.4, Home 3.4.0. I’m doing the build with Auto Build Marlin 2.1.36.
I uninstalled PlatformIO and reinstalled it.
I have set my virus scanner to exclude the build directory.
When task manager opens there are no visible signs of any application peeking out resources.
If I boot in safe mode the compile works as expected and other applications are not bogged down.
This is very bizarre and frustrating beyond comprehension.
Does anyone have a suggestion? As a software engineer, I find it hard to comprehend the slowdown when there are no visible resource problems. But I’m very suspicious of a conflict with another program.
