    SubjectProcess in D state (was Re: 2.6.0-test5-mm2)
    Date
    2.6.0-test4 was pretty solid for me.  My main gripe was the weird key repeat 
    problem I've mentioned before (where sometimes a key up event will get missed
    or delayed for no apparent reason, happens about twice an hour in normal
    laptop usage).

    I upgraded to 2.6.0-test5, but USB didn't work (I bought a scanner), so I
    tried -mm2 and USB is back and happy.

    But, twice in a row now I've made this happen:

    1391 pts/1 S 0:00 /bin/bash
    1419 pts/1 S 0:00 /bin/sh ./build.sh
    1423 pts/1 S 0:00 /bin/bash
    /home/landley/pending/newfirmware/make-stat
    1447 pts/1 D 0:04 tar xvjf
    /home/landley/pending/newfirmware/base/linux
    1448 pts/1 S 0:37 bzip2 -d

    All I have to do is run my script, it tries to extract the kernel tarball, and
    tar hangs in D state.

    How do I debug this? (Is there some way to get the output of Ctrl-ScrLk to go
    to the log instead of just the console? My system isn't currently hung, it's
    just got a process that is. This process being hung prevents my partitions
    from being unmounted on shutdown, which is annoying.)

    Other miscelanous bugs: cut and paste only works some of the time (it pastes
    blanks other times, dunno if this was -test5 or -mm2; it worked fine in
    -test4).

    The key repeat problem is still there, although still highly intermittent.

    The boot hung enabling swap space once. I don't know why. (Init was already
    running and everything...)
