I had some problems with xfs that I think I fixed. Basically I had
cp/mv and others core dump rather than work. What I did is I backed up my
xfs based data, rebuilt the raido, rebuilt the filesystem, and it now
seems to work properly. No core dumps.
I had built the original file system with the RedHat 7.1 iso based
images, and tools. I changed distros to Mandrake. Thats when it broke.
So, using plain old 2.4.5 + patches under Mandrake, it is running fine
(afte rthe little backup bit above).
During this time, I was unable to build the development tree (same
crashes that everyone else was getting, using wither the 2.91.66 or the
2.96.3 compilers). I was also unable to apply the patches to a 2.4.5-5mdk
Mandrake source tree. Got lots of rej's. I am hoping that the work to
get it into the kernel accelerates, so we wont have the problems in the
not too distant future.
Regardless of the minor annoyances, good work folks!
