cp'ing xx.gz files breaks crc integrity

cp'ing xx.gz files breaks crc integrity

Post by David Lind » Sat, 05 Aug 1995 04:00:00

Howdy all,

I am experiencing a severe problem with gzipped
files becoming corrupt (losing crc checksum integrity)
upon being moved or copied.  I am worried that this
might be connected to my recent HD and motherboard

Some details:
- corruption even if within a single partition
  (funny, I can boot from my newly compiled kernel
   if LILO points to it as
   but not if I copy it to /vmlinuz, then running
   LILO, of course.)
- repeated corruption of crc info on tests of xx.gz
  file copying/moving.

Any advice or comments (or suggestions for the BIOS
settings, or other) would be much appreciated.  Please
could you email as well as post any reply, since our
news-service prunes this group every few hours now(!).
Thanks very much,
Dave Linder

1. cp'ing a large amount of files

While doing some cleanup, we tried to move a bunch of log files from the
logging dir to a dir with the year in its name. (I.E. all of the log
files from 1996 to a dir call logs_1996.)

Under csh, when we tried a "mv *", we got an error message saying there
were too many files. Is there a way around this? Is there another shell
I could wrap around the command to get this to work?
