I'm using xfsprogs 3.1.0, on Debian Lenny, because 3.1.1 fails to build
for some reason.
I've been trying to repair a 1.4TB filesystem for more than a week,
without success. xfs_repair never completes. I straced the stuck process
today and got:
Process 28510 attached - interrupt to quit
futex(0x429cb58, FUTEX_WAIT_PRIVATE, 2, NULL
I'm running xfs_repair -P -t5 -m500 /dev/sda1 because the machine only
has 2GB of RAM and was swapping like crazy. I'll see how it goes with
the -P option.
I'm happy to provide xfs_metadump if this still hangs!
