I wasn't able to reassign defective blocks via scsictl on NetBSD 1.4 ..
it's either not acting like manpage says, or I'm using the wrong device
(tried /dev/rz4 rz4c rrz4 rrz4c ..) ...
ftp://ftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/misc/quick-hacks/sdremap doesn't compile
due to missing include files or me being stupid (hm. REASSIGN_BLOCKS isn't
defined anywhere, but quite vital) ..
So I end up with 4 questions:
- is there a program that scans for bad blocks an remaps them?
- how can I remap bad blocks if not by the methods I tried?
- can't this be done automagically? :)
- can I redirect the Media error message to anything else but
the serial console? I'll loose console access to my system soon
Thanx for any hints ...
