my question is:
this morning one of my Sun Sparc 20 (SUNos 4.1.4,single cpu,64M memory)
halt. it reports as follows:
syslog: ******* system accounting started ********
mode = 0100644, inum = 3850, fs = /var
ialloc = dup alloc
dev = 0x704, block = 4992, fs = /var
panic on cpu 0: free: freeing free block
syncing file system ...
and the system halted.
this machine halted five days ago for the same problem.
I'm eager to know why and how can I avoid this.
thanks for your reply! I'll give the summary.
Why: I had remove a very big accounting file before system accounting.
this may cause the inconsistance of the /var filesystem, and panic the
system. I boot the machine into single-user mode, and use
then reenter multi-user mode. everything is ok till now.
