Possible issue with vnd
I can't cut and paste the commands I did but I think that the following
# dd if=/dev/zero of=xubuntu bs=1 seek=100g count=1
# mke2fs xubuntu (from pkgsrc)
# vndconfig -l (to get an available slot)
# mount_ext2fs /dev/vnd2a /mnt
# rsync -av -S ./Xubuntu/ /mnt/ (sync my built up file system)
Is there anything in that list of commands that should have hung the
system so badly that a reset button restart won't even boot? I have to
turn the system off for a few minutes first.
I had this happen twice on one server and suspected the drives so I
tried it on another and the same thing happened. It seems to happen
while copying a large, sparse file over. Is the fact that the source
file and target file system are both sparse causing the problem?
Running a recently compiled 7.1.0_PATCH kernel and userland.
