Re: [vox-tech] In Denial About These Hard Drive Problems



i went through richard's dmesg.  here are the relevent lines:

  ide0: BM-DMA at 0xc000-0xc007, BIOS settings: hda:DMA, hdb:pio
  hda: IC35L040AVER07-0, ATA DISK drive
  hda: 80418240 sectors (41174 MB) w/1916KiB Cache, CHS=5005/255/63, UDMA(33)
  Partition check:
  hda: hda1 hda2 hda3 hda4 < hda5 hda6 hda7 >
  hda: dma_intr: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
  hda: dma_intr: error=0x40 { UncorrectableError }, LBAsect=33873786,
    sector=2097216
  end_request: I/O error, dev 03:03 (hda), sector 2097216
  EXT3-fs error (device ide0(3,3)): ext3_get_inode_loc: unable to read inode
    block - inode=128385, block=262152
  EXT3-fs error (device ide0(3,3)) in ext3_reserve_inode_write: IO failure
  EXT3-fs error (device ide0(3,3)) in ext3_new_inode: IO failure
  hda: dma_intr: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
  hda: dma_intr: error=0x40 { UncorrectableError }, LBAsect=33873786,
    sector=2097216
  end_request: I/O error, dev 03:03 (hda), sector 2097216
  EXT3-fs error (device ide0(3,3)): ext3_get_inode_loc: unable to read inode
    block - inode=128386, block=262152
  EXT3-fs error (device ide0(3,3)) in ext3_reserve_inode_write: IO failure
  EXT3-fs error (device ide0(3,3)) in ext3_new_inode: IO failure

if this happened "spontaneously", i would say you have an intermittent
failure and that your hard drive needs to be replaced very soon.


don't sweat the other thing (startx 2>X.err) because this is your
problem right here.

richard, there was a long thread about finding out what's taking up your
hard drive space on vox-tech about ... a year ago maybe?   you might
want to check that out.

the poor man's way of doing it (the way i do it) is by applying du -hs *
a bunch of times.
