Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 3260
restore -rf file - Hangs indefinitely.
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 EDT
restore -rf file appears to hang.
When I turned on verbose mode, I discovered that the hang
happens during the restore of the /dev directory tree.
During the restore many entries take a long time to create.
During the restore of some of the entries, error messages
from the kernel appear.
Looks like restore is possibly reading/writing data to the
fixed in current release.
