RE: [vox-tech] Urgent - Problem in upgradation of RH 7.1 to RH 7. 2 !!

This may not prove anything, but when I switched to reiserfs the trouble has
not yet come back. Again this may not prove anything. In addition top showed
the culprit to be the journal ling system I don't recall the package name

this is a buggy implementation of the kernel virtual memory system.  the
"andrea vm".  it was fixed in 2.4.16, and the patches have been applied
to the 2.5.* series.

*definitely* not ext3's fault.

however, i agree here.  i'm waiting myself until 2.5.2 or 2.5.3.  just
to get some of the really nasty/obvious bugs out of the way.
