Anyone else install fcheck?
I'm coming in after the system has been sitting overnight to find a
number of fcheck processes (and apparently associated md5sum processes)
running on the system sucking up huge amounts of memory, killing my
system with thrashing. Cron must be somehow running it.
I have a remote large NAS mounted in /mnt/nas, but I have /mnt/ in the
exlusion list of the config file.
Anyone see this happen before? It is so bad I have to manually shut the
power off to restore control. I don't know why it would keep getting
spawned repeatedly overnight.
