[SLUG] bad sectors??


Hey sluggers,

I have a system runnning rh7, and I have just reciently noticed alot of
errors coming through with dmesg.

hda: read_intr: status=0x59 { DriveReady SeekComplete DataRequest Error }
hda: read_intr: error=0x40 { UncorrectableError }, LBAsect=532033,
sector=531970
end_request: I/O error, dev 03:01 (hda), sector 531970
hda: read_intr: status=0x59 { DriveReady SeekComplete DataRequest Error }
hda: read_intr: error=0x40 { UncorrectableError }, LBAsect=540114,
sector=540051
end_request: I/O error, dev 03:01 (hda), sector 540051


I also get "Bus error" when running
/bin/date, /sbin/ldconfig, etc.

I am thinking that I have developed bad sectors on the disk. I was
wondering if there were any disk checking tools like "scan disk" on
evilware?

Any ideas, or pointers in the right direction :-)

Thanks,
Marcus
