i try to install MozillaFirebird on -current on sgimips.

Compilation succeeded. While in "Installing for Mozilla..." the system
stops and - sometimes - reboots.

Strange noise from SCSI occurs before this. NO error messages from kernel.

Hm, perhaps a disk failure? It's a really old one, so ...

I wonder whethers there's a utility like MS-DOS "scandisk" available for
UNIX / FFSv1 ?
