Hello List,

I am trying to untar a 450 MB tar file on ext3 file system, but every
time untar (using the command "tar zxvf <filename>) hangs and I see no
disk activity. 

While I use ReiserFS file system I can untar the same file successfully.

I am not sure what is missing here.

Please Help!!!

Many Thanks,
