Ah, it is that then. It wasn't clear to me that the error message was
Of course, I had seen the messages, though, strangely, nothing I'd call
an announcement (perhaps I'm not on an 'announce' list or something) ...
but I admit, I haven't really been paying attention that much, and had
been putting it off. I guess now is the time, eh?
Unfortunately, I hadn't been putting off purely (just mostly) due to
laziness. I live in China; I'm lead to believe that upgrading is slow,
so it'll be impractical here with the bandwidth problems (due to the
Taiwan earthquake), and downloading the DVD is taking forever. Hopefully
it'll finish soon. I didn't start the d/l until recently because there
were better uses for the bandwidth.
Anyway, good to know there's something I can do to fix this.
I have been 'umming and ahhing' over whether to do a fresh install onto
2 new (well, unused) disks in RAID1, or just upgrade my aging single
disk install, the disk of which has been getting messages such as
(sometimes 4 sectors) :
messages.4:Dec 24 03:58:08 jeeves smartd: Device: /dev/hda, 1
Currently unreadable (pending) sectors
though nothing since before Christmas, strangely. I guess this sort of
speaks for itself - though I wonder if the messages are really errors,
The computer has it's valuable data on a RAID5 (6x200GB+2 spares), which
should 'just work' after the upgrade/fresh install, right?
There's enough space on the RAID5 for me to dump the whole of /dev/hda
(actually /dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00) onto it so I can get some files.
