Might my disk be faulty?
As I begin once more down the salvage, format, reinstall path, Im beginning to wonder if one of my disks is dodgy.
I have a 2 disk RAID 0. At Christmas while running Kubuntu the OS suffered some unknown but fatal incident. Now my Gentoo has gone a very similar way.
What I think is the maybe the most telling bit of info wrt my question, is that in both cases, when running a live CD to salvage data, the thing just crashes when I try to mount a particular partition. The first time, mounting etc in the Live CD was sure to cause a crash. This time mounting usr has the same effect.
It seems a very strange reaction to me. Could there be a disk fault? And how best to check for one? Luckily, I payed through the nose for an extended waranty, so if somethings wrong Im covered.
