cp segfaults in rescue mode on vfat filesystem
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:51:05 EDT
Description of problem:
When booting into rescue mode off Phoebe cdrom to get files of a f*ckd dos
system, /usr/bin/cp segfaults every time.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot into rescue mode of phoebe, network/dhcp, read-write filesystems
2.Mount vfat file systems hda1,2,3 to /mnt/c /mnt/d /mnt/e
3.cp foo.csv foo1.csv
Thanks for putting the DHCP option into Phoebe rescue! It's really nice. From
now on I'm insisting on a linux partition to resuce POS dos systems ;). I
managed to get my brothers M$ Office docs off of the thing with some creative
use of scp and find -exec. Keep up the good work with the RH Linux!
I can't reproduce this here. Is it reproducible for you on different systems?
Does it work copying things around in the initrd fs?
I can't reproduce it on my desktop system. It _might_ be flakey hardware on the
laptop (which is refusing to even pwoer up right now). Strange that the kernel
didn't panic and scp could encrypt and decrypt successfully hundreds of files
though if there was that knid of problem. I'd leave this as need-more-info/closed.
