I have recently installed linux on my machine from the
Slackware distribution. Although I haven't managed to make X
working 100% OK yet, I have the following question:
Quite often during a session, I get the message "Unexpected HD
interrupt" or something similar and occasionally the system
hangs. Why is that? I have used the mke2fs with the -c option.
I know I have bad blocks on my two Linux partitions, but they
are found and marked(?) during installation.
My system info:
80386DX (25MHz), 512K Trident 8900B SVGA, 8M of RAM, two primary
partitions - one for the filesystem (/dev/hdb2 with ~66Mb) and
a swap one (<4Mb). I have two hard disks, but Linux is on the
second one, which is an IDE one. I have installed everything,
BUT network/mail, printer, TeX and emacs stuff. Linux is loaded
from a diskette.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
