Description Ed McKenzie 2001-07-01 02:40:32 EDT
Copying large numbers of files over loopback from an ISO to the filesystem
(in Nautilus) causes intermittent I/O errors.  Clicking "retry" seems to
let the copy continue, and the data seems to be okay.

I've seen this outside Nautilus as well.

There is a bug reported on kernel traffic with loopback filesystems that causes
hangs where you cannot shutdown or kill the process. It is reportedly fixed in
2.4.3, however I am seeing a problem in doing a cp of a large number of files
(the whole install of 7.1 from non-raid to a raid disk) where it hangs after a
while and I am unable to kill the process or shutdown. As this is the only
similar bug listed here in the RH bugzilla I decided to add to this bug report
rather than create a separate bug
Comment 2 Barry K. Nathan 2004-07-15 04:16:11 EDT
This was fixed quite a while back (although I don't remember the exact
details). I would be completely stunned if this is still present in
Fedora Core or Red Hat Enterprise Linux (in fact I probably would have
noticed by now if it was). This bug should be CLOSED/CURRENTRELEASE.
Comment 3 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 11:39:03 EDT
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/
