My machine just locked up solid and I got some strange errors scroll past
unfortunately they are not complete as i had to transcribe it by hand.
(this is hand typed and i couldn't grab all of it)
siside0:0:1: lost interrupt
type:ata tc_bcount:1026 tc_skip 0
siside0:0:1:bus_master DMA error missing interrupy status = 0x60
siside0:0:1:device timeout, c_bcount=1024 //I missed the rest of this line
//Some more errors scroll passed that im not fast enough to catch
siside0:0:1:recal drive fault
wd1e: device fault writing fsbn 219880030 of 219880030-219880031(wd1 bn
224643838: cn 222860 tn 15 sn 13)
after a few of the above it eventually gave
wd1:soft error (corrected)
and the system became responsive again.
This is netbsd 3.99.3 (i386). I was installing a large number of binary
packages at the time it hung.
Should i be woried about the health of my disk?
Thanks for any help
