Maybe one; sort of.
I built a new kernel, and built and installed all new binaries over the
One of my terminals locked up.
In the middle of a screen update.
386DX-40/32Meg of memory. IDE Hard Drive. VT102 on /dev/tty01.
The ps -ax was inconclusive. The program that was running still thought
it was running. THe process group leader should that it had been idle
for a while and the current process was running. It just wouldn't talk
to the screen. I DS'ed the job and the terminal was still inaccesable.
Once I rebooted, everything was fine. The processes were locked up
trying to exit.
My first thought was "Gremlins". This was a problem for a while a few
months ago, and it hasn't done it since. It used to have something to
do with lots of drive activity and a lost interrupt, but I don't have a
clue what caused it this time.
There. You wanted a problem; you got one.
Now, can I get back to using this terrific system you guys put together?
