Yesterday I installed another disk in my private server, and now I
thought it would be a good idea to also set quotas on it, of course to
prevent the users filling the thing up...
I added /dev/hdc to fstab, did `touch quota.user`, `edquota -u <user>`
and `quotaon /home3` (where hdc is mounted). Now every process
accessing the drive, including quotacheck, repquota, quotaoff, umount,
touch etc, is hanging and won´t even be kill -9´ed.
Any clue on what I did wrong (and, hopefully, what I can now do other
than reboot ;-) )?
Poking around in /proc at one of the hanging processes:
ka:/proc# cat 14746/status
State: D (disk sleep)
Uid: 0 0 0 0
Gid: 0 0 0 0
VmSize: 1148 kB
VmLck: 0 kB
VmRSS: 520 kB
VmData: 60 kB
VmStk: 8 kB
VmExe: 8 kB
VmLib: 1036 kB
an strace immediately hangs itself...
