Thread: processes in disk sleep state

  1. #1

    Question processes in disk sleep state

    Hi!

    My problem is, firefox (3.6.12 and 4.0 beta 7) freezes for seconds/minutes and enters in disk sleep state (the usb-storage process too).
    My system is an EeePC 701, openSUSE 11.3 x86, with the /home and swap partitions on a SD card.

    Thank your help in advance!

    I don't know about your hardware, but this would indicate that the disk is
    not responding and so software is kept waiting for it. It could happen, for
    instance, if there are disk errors and the kernel is trying and trying.

    Just a guess.

    If I'm correct, the errors would show in the log.
