What the FUCIK

hda: dma_intr: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
hda: dma_intr: error=0x40 { UncorrectableError }, LBAsect=23316309, sector=5398944
end_request: I/O error, dev 03:07 (hda), sector 5398944

This, followed by a hard crash, happens on my linux laptop now every time I try to build Xchat. Oh but it gets better. It happens during the ./Configure script because the config strip is trying to verify my version of the GNU FORTRAN compiler.

Because, you know, you need Fortran to irc.

  1. Even better… I’ve had that error a couple times before, always presaging a total hardware failure in the indicated IDE hard drive. BACK YO’ ASS UP!

  2. That very same thing happened with the IBM laptop that I had when we were at Metapa. Back up. Locate warranty or new hard drive. fsck won’t help you.
