Re: reg. fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly on NFS




Avarab,

I enabled GIT_TRACE, packet, etc. I could not make much sense of the
output. I downloaded git source and started looking at the code.
Yeah, kernel compilation with failovers worked on our filesystem. We
tried xfs test suite with failovers, it worked. Since it's failing
with open source NFS, I am wondering if this even has anything to do
with filesystem.

Jeff,

Thank you for the clear instructions on strace.

Looks like 5 and 6 are two ends of a pipe.

read(5, "\27\3\3\5r", 5)          = 5

Last read from pipe (fd 5) was a partial read. Write has succeeded on
the pipe but read failed, that's strange. In this case, it doesn't
even look like the write was interleaved.

Thanks,
Satya.
