#150 closed defect (fixed)

Restore crashes during ext3 format of LVM

Reported by: eleventeenth Owned by: Bruno Cornec
Priority: normal Milestone: 2.2.4
Component: mondo Version: 2.2.1
Severity: normal Keywords:


Hardware: Dell PowerEdge? 1855 (Blade server) OS: Fedora Core 5 (LVM based) Boot options: added "ramdisk_blocksize=1024" (fedora specific)

All blades in teh chasis are exactly the same. After install on one blade, we imaged a DVD using the most recent Mondo. Using this DVD, we attempted to restore onto another of the blades. This crashed out after it started to format the LVM partitions it just created.

This was first attempted on non-interractive. We then tried on interractive, then tried to mkfs.ext3 on the LVM partitions from expert mode. Each resulted in:

Writing INODE tables: bad page state in process 'mkfs.ext2'

we could not get log files as it locked fully and needed reboot. Other errors were displayed on screen, but after about 30 seconds to 1 minute, the following was displayed:

Bug: spinlock lockup on CPU#0,mkfs.ext2/7559,c06c9380 (tainted: G B)

If we can provide further information, please ask.

Chris McLean?

Now that 2.2.2 is officially published on could you check again if this has been solved for good.

will do when I can - which might be some time (weeks/months) as we have since manually installed all our blades

Is it linked to ? In which case I suspect it has nothing to do with mondo in itself :-(

Maybe related to #157 and an issue on FC5 kernel. Please try with an older kernel as well or mindi failsafe kernel

Resolution: fixed

As I've got no news on that bug I'll close it. If it's not the case, please first test with the latest 2.2.4 before re-opening it.
