Description jyong 2000-03-07 13:59:47 EST
    I'm trying to install 4 18.2G Hard Drives off of a wide SCSI card
      on a clean system that I'm bringing up with 6.1
    When I ran mkfs or mke2fs on these (1 partition per drive) I can
      get through one drive fine, but the next one will hang the machine.
      Replicating the problem, I did a free right after a reinstall of
      6.1 and it showed 193M of ram (roughly all free).  Right after the
      first mke2fs, I only had about 3M free.  This memory is not being
      freed up regardless of what I try.  Any suggestion?

    Is there a memory leak with either mke2fs or mkfs?

Try the updated kernel from 6.2?
