Subject[OOPS] reiserfs and tar
From
Date
Hi.

Some days ago i had the silly idea to make a backup. I have a small server
with a IBM-DTLA-307045 harddisk and i wanted to backup some dirs in /home
(which is a reiserfs partition and exported via NFS -- i use the
kernel-server). The backup should be saved on another reiserfs partition on
the same harddisk:

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part2
167M 14M 143M 9% /
/dev/discs/disc1/part7
29G 2.7G 26G 10% /home
/dev/discs/disc1/part5
8.8G 132M 8.6G 2% /backup

I tried to backup not complete /home but about 900MB of it.

The server is an AMD K6-200 on a Gigabyte GA586 board with 128MB of memory, a
Adaptec AHA2940 SCSI-Controller and a Promise PDC20267 IDE-Controller to which
only the IBM harddisk is attachted (DMA activated:
/sbin/hdparm -c1 /dev/discs/disc1/disc
/sbin/hdparm -W 0 /dev/discs/disc1/disc ).

# hdparm -v /dev/discs/disc1/disc

/dev/discs/disc1/disc:
multcount = 0 (off)
I/O support = 1 (32-bit)
unmaskirq = 0 (off)
using_dma = 1 (on)
keepsettings = 0 (off)
nowerr = 0 (off)
readonly = 0 (off)
readahead = 8 (on)
geometry = 23819/16/63, sectors = 90069840, start = 0

When i start the backup, tar reaches about 100MB archive size (sometimes only
50MB, sometime about 150MB) and then the kernel oopses:

I tried Kernel 2.4.10, 2.4.9 and 2.4.6 -- with all 3 version (all three
vanilla from kernel.org) the same error. Ah, /home was exported while making
the backup, but no client was working. Any ideas? (If you need more data,
please ask! I've no experience debugging the kernel.)

P.S. The oops is reproduceable.

Until the next mail...,
