Hi again,

I'm having problems with what sounds like a common problem on Linux (RH 6.2
in my case). It happens when trying to run MRTG and the error is along the
lines of "....log file corrupt or not in sorted order... the backup log file
was invalid aswell".

I've checked out the archives and have seen a few posts regarding this
error. Obviously there's a lot of people out there who have fixed this
error, but I've only seen a few posts short.

I've verified that the file system is OK (no problems). 
Calls to the devices are not falling over one another and generally there
are no other problems.

Someone mentioned moving to FreeBSD for I/O reliability... would you like to
share your thoughts on this with me, as I've no exposure here.

Suggestions/solutions would be greatly appreciated,
