Re: [linux-lvm] lvm deadlock with 2.4.x kernel?



I've recreated the system hang exactly as I've described below with a pvscan
during a copy.  I used a new kernel with hacking enabled, redirected 1 into
/proc/sys/kernel/sysrq.  None of the sysrq commands seemed to have worked.  The
system hung about 20 to 30 seconds into the copy process.
