xfonts-*dpi and reiserfs?
I have this weird 'problem' I can't figure out what causes this, and
I was wondering if anyone else is having the same problem. I wrote
Branden (xfonts-*dpi maintainer) about this, but he hasn't received
any other messages about this yet.
This is what happens:
Each and every time I receive xfonts-*dpi upgrades, when dpkg tries to
install them, they fail like this:
|[11:53] [root@replicator:~] # dpkg -i
|(Reading database ... 57366 files and directories currently installed.)
|Preparing to replace xfonts-100dpi 4.1.0-5 (using
|Unpacking replacement xfonts-100dpi ...
|dpkg: error processing

|dpkg-deb: subprocess paste killed by signal (Broken pipe)
|Running update-fonts-dir in 100dpi font directory...done.
|Running update-fonts-alias in 100dpi font directory...done.
|Errors were encountered while processing:
|zsh: 22893 exit 1 dpkg -i
And I get this message in my syslog:
|Sep 10 11:54:05 replicator kernel: reiserfs_add_entry: Congratulations!
|we have got hash function screwed up
So, when I do 'dpkg --purge xfonts-100dpi xfonts-75dpi ; apt-get install
xfonts-100dpi xfonts-75dpi' everything works like a charm!
I'm having this problem on two of my systems, and they both run
reiserfs, and this only happens with xfonts-*dpi. I bet Branden is
trying to conquer the world with this evilness in his packages. :)
Can anyone explain what this is?
Running reiserfsck (scary!) doesn't help, but then again, reiserfsck is
pre-alpha-alpha-beta software, according to the lists .. :)
I haven't tried rebuilding the tree (but why should I, reiserfsck says
everything is OK, and I haven't noticed any weirdness besides this)
