Any idea what changes in COMPAT_LINUX shipped with netbsd-5 might be


After that, we at least got a full backup to work, but the incremental backups still fails. It doesn't feel stable ATM. I just noticed that the
df command seems to get "blocked" during a incremental backup try.

-bash-4.0$ ktruss df

I think that the namei changes that handle the emulated root could be at
fault here, or NFS. Have you tried using a loopback mount?

Loopback seems to work, but then again, we had problems running that.
So the hanging df seems to be COMPAT_LINUX + NFS related.

How can we help to find the cause so it can be fixed?
