I run NetBSD 2.0 with default kernel on a Dell PowerEdge 4600.
After a few days uptime, some processes locked in state "D" in ps. The
count of this locked processes grows until I can't log in again. No more
processes can be started on the machine (error message: can't fork)
Only a reboot will help to solve the problem.
Has anyone an idea?
