Description torsten.naumann 1999-05-25 10:30:40 UTC
If I do "cp somewhta somewhere" an at the same time I run repquota and/or quotacheck the quota tools go into sate "D" (uninterruptible sleep). I've tried it on variuos hardware platforms (i386 with different scsi and ide adaptors). On the kernel-list comes a patch for 2.2.6 that solves this problem but it isn't official. Here is the header of this posting: List: linux-kernel Subject: Re: sync problem in 2.2.5 From: Jan Kara <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 1999-04-20 22:15:58 It occurs in RedHat Linux 5.2 and 6.0. In the official Debian 2.1 Linux Dist. this error occurs not.

The patch is mostly good. Jan has posted a couple of other updates since. It doesn't fix the SMP case apparently.

This issue has been forwarded to a developer for further action.

Christian, this problem is not fixed in kernel-2.2.12-3.
