#106 closed bug (fixed)

BFS error when installing several times with Installer

Reported by: korli Owned by: axeld
Priority: high Milestone: R1
Component: System/Kernel Version:
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Has a Patch: no Platform: All


CachedNode::Allocate() returns B_ERROR on a testcase:

  • Run Installer with two twin haiku hd images in QEmu.
  • Install boot partition on the other, several times if needed.
  • An alert should appears telling "Error copying ??? ??? : General system


  • The serial log displays "bfs: Allocate:330: General system error", which is

the last line in CachedNode::Allocate().

  • The good news is Haiku doesn't crash at all, it just runs normally after this


ps tells memory is used 42% QEmu uses 282Mo when configured for a 256Mo VM.

I also commit changes to trace this error code path

Seems fixed with recent kernel changes
