Description Alan Bradley 2003-09-09 10:54:52 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 

Description of problem:
I presume the problem is with the USB utils.  If I put a "memory stick" into 
the USB port, mount it and copy a file to it the server freezes.  It loses all 
contact with the network and keyboard, etc.  The only solution is to reboot 
the server.  *** This only seems to happen with memory sticks bigger than 
16MB.  If I use a 16MB memory stick it works with no problem. ***

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
libusb-0.1.5-3  and  usbutils-0.9-5

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert USB memory stick and mount it
2. Copy a file > 20MB to it
3. Server Freezes

Actual Results:  Server Freezes and will not respond via keyboard or network.

Expected Results:  File should have been copied to memory stick.

Additional info:

The server is an IBM netfinity with 4 x 1.7Ghz CPU's and 8GB RAM.
It is running a +/- 40GB Oracle database.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
