I updated my source for 1.5 to be current as of yesterday (September 30,
2000) since it looked like there were some updates since the snapshot of
1.5ALPHA2. I newfs_lfs'd the disk and mounted it. It again couldn't
handle the newlfs until I doubled the logical segment size from the
default. The machine panic'd again, this time it wasn't the scsi
controller's fault, probably. :) I suspect it was lfs_cleanerd, at a
guess, as I mounted the filesystem and then did nothing else to touch
the filesystem, and after a little while it crashed.
lfs_writeinode: negative bytes (segment 0 short by 128)
panic: lfs_writeinode: negative bytes
Only this time I didn't get a core dump.
