I'm running the i386 -current dated Sep 30, 1995. I have a Gnu source tree
on /usr/src/Gnu union-mounted below ~/Gnu. Many of Gnu's sources have odd
ownership information (i.e., not root:wheel) and permissions, which had been
causing me severe lockup/reboot problems until I discovered the source.
If a new directory in the source tree, say /usr/src/Gnu/gnuchess, doesn't
give me execute permissions for that directory, and I try to ls that
directory at the mount point ~/Gnu/gnuchess, all terminal I/O will halt
while the system accesses the hard drive for 5-10 seconds, after which the
My system is an AMD 486DX4-100, 16MB RAM, using an Adaptec 1542CF and
Quantum 1.8GB hard drive, if any of that is important.
