since i don't babysit my console, i didn't see this until .mrg. pointed out
the very same thing, and yes:
sd1(esp0:3:0): Check Condition on CDB: 0x08 1c dd 60 10 00
SENSE KEY: Media Error
INFO FIELD: 1891681
ASC/ASCQ: Unrecovered Read Error
looks like it's time to find new disk for this thing. although it is /var/log
so maybe i'll just run it until it up and dies. who needs logs anyway ;0
A low level format of the device may recover the drive. Certainly trying
that won't hurt, if you think that you may have to replace the disk
I did this to a 18GB Seagate recently with great success. A 1GB Seagate,
also suffering problems, didn't recover.
The scsictl in NetBSD will let you try this.
