I have an Athlon 700MHZ, 256mb ram, AIC7XXX w 2/U2W drives system. I've
been running JFS on a small partition for a few weeks, JFS 0.3.1 under
2.4.5, 0.3.3 with 2.4.6-pre1 and yesterday I tried 2.4.6-pre2 with jfs
I rebooted into the new kernel, and noticed one of those Red Hat [FAIL]
messages that pops up during the rc/init stages. It's a config problem
I've had for months, nothing new, but I decided I'd take care of it. I
logged into the console, ran emacs and it segfaulted. I ran 'dmesg' but
there was nothing (I was expecting to see an oops). I ran emacs again,
segfault. I tried logging in to another console, hang.
At this point I hit sysrq-T, and of everything that spewed by, I noticed
one process (which had scrolled to far off the screen to see the PID)
with a whole lot of
<dbdbdbdb> <dbdbdbdb> <dbdbdbdb> in the stack trace.
At this point I did sysrq-S-U-B and rebooted. End of story.
My filesystems were severely f***ed at this point. A total of about 60
seconds running this kernel and I was dead. My OS partition was
trashed, about 1/2 of it was unrecoverable. My home partition fared
better (good luck) but still had plenty of trashed inodes.
I've never had problems with any kernels before this...
That's my story,
