Description Yu-Kwan Cheung 2004-03-12 11:06:49 UTC
I'm using redhat 9 with samba-3.0.2pre1-1.
After I install and run seti@home command line version as a normal user through
PuTTY, the connection from my W2K Pro workstation frozen, then I tried to stop
samba, but smbd processes can't stop, only nmbd process can stop, neither 'kill
-9 [[smbd_pid], [smbd_pid] ...]' nor '/etc/rc.d/init.d/smb stop'.
The only way to stop the problem is restart the redhat server.

This is my first time to report bug, please let me know what additional
information is needed.

if kill -9 doesn't work, it sounds more like a kernel issue.  Can
you kill any other processes?

pretty sure this is a kernel bug
