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

It occurs in RedHat Linux 5.2 and 6.0.

In the official Debian 2.1 Linux Dist. this error occurs

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.
