Subject: Crash
From: Johan Vromans (jvromans_at_squirrel.nl)
Date: 2003-04-06


Yesterday evening I initiated a huge transfer (rsync) to my AJB20;
this morning I found my system in a solid hang and I had to crash boot
it. The following error information is just in case someone is
interested or otherwise able to do something with it. I'm not sure
that Rockbox is responsible (or even involved)...

The AJB20 was running the daily build of April 5. When I started the
transfer it showed the Rockbox USB screen. However, this morning it
was showing the Archos USB screen which indicates (I think) that
Rockbox crashed and the AJB20 rebooted. Since it was connected to the
power supply I guess it rebooted the Archos battery charger and USB.
The Archos disk is 82% full.

The huge transfer involved some 4300 operations (deletes and copies,
according to rsync -n) of which some 3700 were completed, at least
they got a written report in the log file.

My system is running GNU/Linux (Red Hat 7.2) with kernel 2.4.20. The
AJB20 is connected via USB2. The errors in the system logfile:

 SCSI disk error : host 1 channel 0 id 0 lun 0 return code = 8000000

  I/O error: dev 08:31, sector 14541208

 Additional sense indicates Peripheral device write fault
  I/O error: dev 08:31, sector 7271
 ... many more write faults ...

There are some 36000 messages like this in the system log, starting at
00:02:44; the last message is written at 00:12:17. However, system
activity continues for a couple of hours until it got stuck while
running the system backups (involving SCSI disks and tapes).

As I said, I don't know if Rockbox is involved. I just wanted to let
you know.
