Re: debugging ideas? login problems...
- I realized I forgot a detail: Unslung V2.3R63-uNSLUng-6.8-beta
copied from the telnet motd screen. after telneting in, the machine
prints the motd, then just hangs like it can't start the shell...
- Sounds like one of your disk has a corrupted file
system. I had similar symptoms.
How to check and fix
- Possible solution: swap space.
I was unable to login to my slug after a short while of running, despite other
programs being functional.
At a guess, I figured that turning off the swap space might have been
responsible. If no new applications could be made, then the login would work,
but a shell could never be spawned.
So I created a swap file on my harddrive (the one I would like to mostly stay
spun down). So far, a few days have passed and I haven't had any problems. So
I think this might have fixed it.
One question: what's the best way to tell how much memory is free on the slug
(and how much swap space it's using)? I worry that using top is too large...
