We have a pair of Linux servers at work, doing DNS for the intranet.
One of them is being a bit tweaky.
After 109 days of up time, I rebooted the system as it is having issues running a program. The system itself has been installed for 202 days.
It is tweaky in that bash crashes, when you login as root on the front terminal, it sometimes after one command will dump you back to a login screen.
I have yet to examine the libraries, to see if there are discrepencies there, and to ldd bash, roots current shell is ksh93.. It runs fine under telnet, but on the local virtual terminal both have issues. This also includes doing an internet search on this issue.
Dual Pentium II 400, 5 SCSI UW 9 Gig Drives, Compaq 1600R (Older machines.) 1 gig ram
Rh 72 with updates
Its sister system, does not have these issues and it is the same configuration.
Why was it rebooted?
kjournald had 442 hours of activity
One other process had tons of time also. The load was over 1.2, with no processes showing actual usage of time other than kjournald
libpopt.so.0.0.0 was under /usr/lib, the raidstart program didn't want to run properly, so it kept dropping to a RAID RESCUE mode, which was annoying. Figured out to copy that library from /usr/lib to /lib
Config ; raid1 for all of these
across 2 SCSI UW disks.
