"Disk has many bad sectors" message after installing Open SuSE 12.1
I recently purchased an Open SuSE 12.1 disk from OSDisc.com, and installed it (dual boot with Win XP) on my old Compaq Presario laptop from 2006. It looks like the install went okay, but I am getting a "Hard Disk Problems Detected" message. It also says in red lettering "Red SMART status, Disk has many bad sectors."
Is there any type of check disk utility in Linux? I am wondering how to fix the sectors.
