I have a 3.2GB drive with a single partition formated with LFS, using the
recommended values in the manpage, 8192/1024/7. Look:
/dev/wd1e on /sources type lfs (nosuid, nodev, local)
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
/dev/wd1e 2873867 2124390 462091 82% /sources
The contents of the partition are (you see, only lots of small source
/home/jmmv$ ls /sources
distfiles htdocs lost+found src xsrc
doc ifile pkgsrc src-1.6
Well, I built xsrc (which placed all the object files inside /sources/xsrc).
Yesterday I went to /sources/xsrc and did 'make cleandir'. Haha, the kernel
lfs_truncate: segment 216159 short by 8192
panic: lfs_truncate: negative bytes
I tried 'sync' from ddb, and it COMPLETLY hangs. It says 'syncing disks...'
and it stays there, no possibility to reboot. I think I can't get a core...
Is this panic a known issue? Maybe I need to reformat the drive using
the same bsize and fsize? (i.e. 8192/8192 or 4096/4096...)
