I've been running 2.4.20-xfs (CVS co on March, 4th)
on my home workstation flawlessly, until... now.
Any process, which tries to ,,access'' (I didn't try
to narrow it down to some particular syscall)
/home (which is an XFS filesystem) hangs in ,,D'' state.
Should I ask you for some hack hints, or move towards
-current, and ask no questions?
(I wasn't following XFS development recently, and
I don't know if there were any changes which could
impact on such behavior - mea culpa :-)
The machine's been running for about 13hrs, idling
The compiler I used was gcc-2.96-113 (from RH 7.3 updates).
If it matters - / is an ext3 on another drive.
Unfortunately this kernel has no KDB support, so
I may eventually provide traces only from ,,Alt+SysRQ+T''
if they can be found useful in any way (ksymoops'd,
If you need more data - don't hesitate and demand them.
Thanks in advance,
