After 3 days uptime, I can't run
top in Linux.
This is x86 Linux Fedora Core 8 running under vmWare under Windows XP.
[root@fc8 ]# uname -a Linux fc8 126.96.36.199-42.fc8 #1 SMP Tue Oct 30 13:55:12 EDT 2007 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
ps, uptime works fine.
Anyone have any suggestion on what might be the problem or how to diagnose it?
There is no error message. The "top" command just hangs there.
Also, one other problem I notice at the sametime was that
time somecommand gives:
real 0m0.000s user 0m0.000s sys 0m0.000s
somecommand did take a few seconds to execute.
The system time in Linux under vmWare session is corrected. I don't use the ntp to sync time. I have a cron job to sync time with the
hwclock --hwtosys command.
