Data Corruption on NFS mounted filesystems
Last modified: 2007-12-07 18:33:21 EST
Description of problem:
Data Corruption on NFS4 mounted filesystems
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start gimp and make a complex multi layer image
2. save as xcf
3. open the xcf
4. Gimp error: XCF: This file is corrupt! I have loaded as much
of it as I can, but it is incomplete.
XCF: This file is corrupt! I have loaded as much of it as I can, but it is
Gimp operating on the opened file
Known kernel bug:
kernel-188.8.131.52-34.fc7 is in updates-testing with this fix applied.
You can update with:
# yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update kernel
Problem seems to be solved this way.
The bug title is slightly misleading; I'm seeing this with NFS v3 as well. It
affects LightZone 2.4 for Linux when exporting TIFF files (the files are
unreadable by libtiff-enabled applications due to "zero scanline size").
Any idea of how much longer this data-corruption problem explicitly fixed in the
Fedora 8 kernel (on Nov 7), commonly exercised by backup programs (rsync -S) on
commonly-used filesystem types (nfs) going to remain in the most up-to-date
stable kernel available for Fedora 7?
184.108.40.206-34 is being released ASAP.
It has been available in updates-testing for over a week...
