system-config-lvm: lvcreate hangs
Last modified: 2009-04-16 19:12:02 EDT
Description of problem:
Using system-config-lvm to create new logical volume, the GUI would hang if:
* the lv size is above 30GB; and
* filesystem (say ext3) is selected.
If the filesystem is specified as "none", it works without troubles.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
each time and every time
1) customer used strace and found it hung at mkfs.
2) I did gdb attach, it hung at pthread's __write_nocancel():
#0 0x000000383cc0af22 in __write_nocancel () from /lib64/tls/libpthread.so.0
#1 0x000000383c6afd36 in PyOS_AfterFork () from /usr/lib64/libpython2.3.so.1.0
#2 0x000000383c6896df in _PyEval_SliceIndex () from /usr/lib64/libpython2.3.so.1.0
#3 0x000000383c689ba1 in _PyEval_SliceIndex () from /usr/lib64/libpython2.3.so.1.0
.. (other deleted).
Forgot to say,
I ran this on x86_64 machine and cww (our TAM) also recreated this issue on
i686. So it is not platform dependent.
