Subject: processes stuck in D state
Date: Wed, 4 Apr 2001 17:47:20 +0200 (CEST)	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <Pine.LNX.4.33.0104041744100.1585-100000@pau.intranet.ct> (raw)

Since 2.2.4-ac28 and 2.4.3 I keep on getting processes in D state that I
cannot kill, usually mozilla or nautilus which use a large amount of RAM.
Today is galeon:

A ps -eo pid,stat,pcpu,nwchan,wchan=WIDE-WCHAN-COLUMN -o args shows the
11520 D     0.0 105db1 down_write_failed /usr/bin/galeon-bin

This didn't happen neither with 2.4.2 nor with 2.4.3-pre7; I'm not sure
about pre8.
