using 2.4.22-openmosix3 I frequently observe indefinitly
long hanging processes with a simple shell command like:
cat long_text_file | wc -l
on the other hand
wc -l long_text_file or
wc -l < long_text_file
report rapidly the answer (12041604 lines)
I compiled the latest fileutils and coreutils to make sure
and the same problem happens.
The 2.4.22 kernel without the openmosix patch
works fine with the same commands.
I had noticed that some "tar -cf - . | tar -xf -"
copies also hanged.
I wonder if the "pipe" is modified by the 2.4.22-
I used the following kernel options:
# CONFIG_MOSIX_TOPOLOGY is not set
Any help would be appreciated.
