Description

I was trying to compile within a FAT32 partition for testing, already when invoking cmake it hangs the whole Terminal where I typed 'cmake' in.

Apparently the system is hanging.

Here's the output of a serial debug session:

Apparently the cmake process invoked make, which is waiting for data in dosfs_read. The make thread is waiting for "page events".

On the other hand the "page writer" thread hangs in dosfs_write_pages:

Seems to be an issue with concurrent reading/writing from FAT32. Probably other FS are affected as well.

Was this a partition on a USB drive? That may have been the problem. Please retest under a recent nightly.

Component: File Systems/FAT- General

"waiting for page events" means it is waiting for data to be written out or read from the underlying device. So the real cause of this is the underlying device stalling out. A syslog would reveal more.
