Re: Oops on 2.4.13 w/ ext3-2.4-0.9.13-2413



Stephen,

Thanks for the response - I only have a copy of this Oops, however
I will be sure to capture more today and post them as soon as I
have them..  

This Oops happened when copying a file over the top of another file
(overwriting an old file)..  I'll post them as I get them..

Thanks,

Paul W.
