Description Rutger Noot 1999-10-22 08:59:56 UTC
I am running kernel 2.2.5-22 on a sparc64 (the one from the
rpm file, did not compile myself) and I am experiencing the
following problem (cited from /var/log/messages)
> Oct 21 09:11:49 forestiere kernel: 03:04:
rw=1,                     want=131048, limit=131040
> Oct 21 09:11:49 forestiere kernel: attempt to
access                beyond end of device
By the way,  03:04 is /dev/hda4 is the swap partition.
The macine is a sparc ultra5 with one ide drive, no scsi

It must be added (though imo unrelated) that at the same
time there was a problem with the ypserver for my nis-domain
causing yp-requests to be frequently timed out.

Comment 1 Rutger Noot 1999-10-25 07:18:59 UTC
Finaly, the problem is probaly related to the ypserver being down
or slow: the nis problem reproduced itself and so did the swap

Comment 3 khp 2000-03-05 03:24:59 UTC
The ypserver trouble may be related to the bug I just reported: 9968
