Running processes get killed spontaneously
I'm running Featherlinux live from a CD on an old Compaq server. I've copied the contents of the various hard drive partitions on this Compaq server to a Windows share mounted via Samba.
I would like to make sure that I have an exact copy of the local files on the Compaq partitions copied to my Windows share. So I want to compare the resulting the files with the original ones. I'm using "diff" for this purpose.
I execute the command:
diff -r maal/compaq /media
The program executes for a while and then outputs the following message:
I've also tried this command, to compare file names and corresponding file sizes:
cmp `ls -R -s --block-size=1 /maal/compaq` `ls -R -s --block-size=1 /media`
Which, after some time, outputs the same:
I can't figure out what is killing it or why it is being killed. The tar command produces the same results:
root@0[knoppix]# tar -cpkf 1048576 maal/compaq/back.tar.gz /media/sda2 /media/sda5 /media/sdb1
tar: Removing leading `/' from member names
Does anyone know how to make sure the process I'm running doesn't get killed?
Thanks in advance!
