ext3-fs errors during slack install
I have a ibm 75GXP 75 gb hard drive that I am trying to install slackware 8.1 on. I have chosen both fast and slow format of ext3 to see if it fixes the problem that I will post in a sec, but neither did. The slow format took a while as it was also checking for bad blocks, so I figured that that might just fix it. Anyways, tried 1 inode per 4096 bytes. Everything is fine until i select the packages I want and to to install, I get this scrolling the screen sometime during it:
Ext3-fs error (device ide0(3, 1)) in ext3_reserve_inode_write : IO failure
Ext3-fs error (device ide0(3, 1)) : ext3_get_inode_loc : unable to read inode block -inode = 3506177, block = 3506181
Those numbers are just examples as it has different numbers with the same error scroll.. Can anyone help with this?
