I think my problem is hard disk related, but I'm not sure. I'm running RedHat Linux 8.0, but for some odd reason, it crashes ever other day or so. I haven't added any new peripheral devices, or installed any new software. I don't know where the logs are, or which logs to check to get more information about why the system freezes. I usually have to manually reboot the computer to get everything running again....on a couple of occasions, I've seen the following error on the console screen before the computer powered down for reboot
"i/o error : dev 08:05, sector 1292448"
I've also seen similar messages like the one above.
Does anyone have any ideas about what could be causing the system crash? I know I haven't given a lot of information, but if needed, I can provide additional information. Also, any ideas of any .log files that can give me some clue as to what's happening before the system crashes? I apologize in advance if I'm posting to the wrong forum
