Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 75442
xfs fails silently when root fs is full
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:47:20 EDT
Description of Problem:
I've debugged two systems in the past week that would not boot into X. The
problem turned out to be that xfs was not running which in turn was due to
the file system being out of space. When starting xfs ("service xfs start")
it responds OK, and the only log messages report successful startup. There
is no indication that it actually failed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. "service stop xfs"
2. fill up the root file system
3. "service start xfs"
4. "ps -fe |grep xfs"
xfs is not running
Either xfs should be running, or "service xfs start" should have reported an
Known issue already reported in bugzilla. I'll dupe this
when I find it. Hoping to fix for next release.
