“PlatformIO: Rebuilding IntelliSense Index” begins on VSCode startup, quickly consumes all RAM (up to 32 GB), and causes the computer to crash. Unfortunately this does not produce any logs since the computer hard-crashes.
Likewise, if the Rebuild python task is ended via task manager and a build is attempted (compiling Marlin firmware), the build process will cause the same issue.
I’m guessing the issue is related to the 6.0.0 core since I haven’t had any issues in the past with the same code, but downgrading to 5.2.5 with
pip install -U "platformio==5.2.5"
returns the following error:
Obsolete PIO Core v5.2.5 is used (previous was 6.0.0) Please remove multiple PIO Cores from a system:
I noticed other users compiling marlin code have had similar issues as well, but since the “Rebuilding IntelliSense Index” process has the same issue I’m guessing its unrelated to the code I’m compiling. I’ve also tried reinstalling python. Is there a solution I’m missing, or something I’m doing wrong to downgrade to 5.2.5?
