SubjectRe: 2.4.0-test12 not liking high disk i/o
well, i hate to be piling on here, but i just encountered this (i think
it's this) this morning. i was printing a 145+m file (to /dev/lp0) from
an ide drive and it locked up. just before the lockup, i noticed it was
very sluggish, as if it were under very heavy load (which is really
wasn't). this is on an smp-enabled machine (noapic at lilo prompt
because of the usb/pirq(?) problem). i'm using 2.4.0-test12 on a tyan
tiger 133 (via apollo 133a chipset) mobo. the machine has 512m memory
and another 512m in swap (didn't notice much swap activity, but i could
have missed it). there were no messages in the logs.

if there's any info i can provide or tests i can run, just let me know.
