When I use Bonsai for backing up filesystems and copying and moving files,Hi,
usually over 1 GB, I can have problems with halt and reboot, only able to do
so in the terminal.
Anyone else experience this ? Any possible solutions ?
I'm using a 900mhz netbook, Bonsai is on a flash drive, and otherwise it's
I would like to try to help you, but I might be missing a few informations : cpu speed is one thing, but to copy files you need some ram, and there are a choice of methods.
First, how much ram is there in the machine on which you boot the flash drive ?
Second, did you keep the zram module working in your bonsai version or did you not ?
Third : do you copy with gui copy/paste, or do you use "cp" in a console ?
To end with, have you checked that haldaemon is still started when you want to halt or reboot the system ? You can do that as root with the command "service haldaemon restart".
The machine has 1 GB of RAM, never gives a message that RAM is completely used, etc..
Zram is commented out and my FSArchiver probe simple command confirms this.
The copy to or move to of the filesystem archive files is done with PCManFM and that
runs smoothly, copying the files from the flash drive to a USB portable drive for safekeeping.
FSArchiver runs as root from the terminal and sometimes the several backups take over an hour,
15 to 20 minutes for each one, and I try to do this only once a month. They have been
running smoothly, backup and restore.
I'll have to run the haldaemon command you suggested later in the month to get the machine in exactly
the right situation to duplicate the error then. When I do a couple backups and it's ready to do the
error. Did happen more than once and I thought the window manager just does that.
Well, have a good one and thanks for your response.
