kernel: attempt to access beyond end of device" Message on boot.


Hello all!

Using sony vaio sz2xrp; Slackware 12.1

Booted with my external IDE hard disk plugged in. Got these messages:

sdb is the external hard drive.

Does this mean that the disk was not partitioned correctly? The disk is FAT32 and has only one partition.
However, it might have a few bad blocks, although as far as I know, bad blocks return different output.

Thanks.

I suggest that you run fsck against the partition to see if the file system has errors.
