Subject:Redhat [Bug 30944] - Kernel 2.4.0 and Kernel 2.2.18: with some programs one file of each directory of NFS shares served by Irix 6.5.9f (and Irix 6.5.8) is missing in directory listings
Kernel 2.4 and Kernel 2.2.18: with some programs one file of each
directory of NFS shares served by Irix 6.5.9f (and Irix 6.5.8) is
missing in directory listings.

We first noted missing directory entries when we put an unmodified
2.2.18 kernel on a Redhat 6.2 system.

This was done to fight other NFS problems not yet reported by me. With
the Redhat 2.2.14 kernel the computer would completely freeze when we
tried to copy a few hundred MBytes of data from our SGI O2000 file
server from an NFS share mounted with TCP - We "fixed" this problem by
rewriting our NIS automounter maps to allow Linux clients to use UDP.

Unfortunately the missing files in directory listings from SGI Irix
6.5.9f NFS servers still persists with the 2.4 kernel - we used the
kernel 2.4.0 kernel that came with the Redhat 7.1beta
uname -a tells Linux test-ah1 2.4.0-0.99.11 #1 Wed Jan 24 16:07:17 EST
2001 i686 unknown


The details of my testing can be found in the following bug report to
Redhat.
