Kernel errors occur during updatedb


Hello all!

Today I just installed a mod for Apache and when I finished and typed update db I got this:

Code:
 updatedb

Have you tried upgrading the kernel? Or compiling one from source?

Hey There,

Try doing

Quote:
find /dev
and let me know if that gives you the same error.

Thanks

, Mikke

abefroman: If I try to upgrade it via atp-get I apparently have the newest version but I never tried to compile it by myself.

eggixyz: no error only a list of files

Hey There,

Bummer - I've seen that before. I still think (if nothing ever happened before) that it's got something to do with this line from the error:

Quote:
$find $SEARCHPATHS $FINDOPTIONS \( $prunefs_exp -type d -regex "$PRUNEREGEX" \) -prune -o $print_option
Try doing a

Quote:
find / -print 2>&1|tee OUTPUT
and that should crash your machine again, if this problem makes any sense

If it does, the bottom of the OUTPUT file should show you where on your system the cpu is tripping up (I'm thinking disk access issue/bad sector or block)

Best wishes

, Mike
