Recently i booted Linux and after 5 mins or so while i was in X the
kernel panic'd because it couldnt read/write to the linux partition ..
/dev/hdb2 .. after looking further and many fsck's later i found that the
errors on the hard disk were in the directory /tmp. So even if i rebooted
and checked the hd with fsck to make ti reboot clean i only had around 1
minute to do stuff before something wanted to write to /tmp and couldnt..
Couldnt start X .. start a backup program or anything :( ..
Hence i have now lost my Linux partition and all that it contained (but i have
a backup from 1 month ago) :) ...
The only problem now is that i cannot format the Linux partiton, even tried
the slow look for errors format in the setup ...because it finds the errors and
after an hr just gives up on the harddrive....
So i am left with replacing the drive i guess... (1.2 gig Maxtor) .. anyone
know what sort of warranty they come with? ..
Also if you can offer any other suggestions or comments please mail myself
as i am in Windows 3.11 now and it pissing me off!!!
