Broken desktop

๐Ÿ•˜๏ธŽ - 2006-06-30

Damn, my new, nice, little desktop box seems to have a broken harddisk - xfs_repair keeps reporting that there is a fatal error reading a specific block when it wants to check the directory structure. Damn.

It looks like quite a challenge to change the harddisk in a Mac Mini. Damn.

Update: Looks like others have the same symptoms as I do. The proposed fix isn't quite enough, though.

Update 2: The patch here does fix the problem. Yay.
