kernel oops - possible hdd issue?


I'm not sure where this belongs, because it could be a mixture of kernel/hardware problems.

Currently running Slackware 12.2, 2.6.30.4, with a mix of two SATA and three PATA drives.

A little history: About three years ago I started running into issues with random system freezing, and, at best, kernel panics/oops. Naturally, I replaced the power supply, which did not work. I then replaced the following, over time: boot HDD(PATA), memory, motherboard, processor, and every cable in the system. Unrelated, I also gained a new monitor, keyboard, and additional SATA drive in that time frame. So, basically, I have an entire new system with the exception of two PATA drives, one SATA drive, and the case.

I'm STILL running into kernel panics/oops issues, though they seem to be (slightly) less random in the fact that they mostly are (or seem to be) happening when the system is writing to the drive(s). The strange part about that theory is that this is happening when I only have the newer drives mounted.

So, I doubt it's the case, and the only remaining components are the drives, so I don't see what else the problem could be.

What I've done recently: recompiled three or four different kernels. Moved everything from the PATA drives to the 1Tb SATA drive and tried to run from there.

I won't venture to speculate any further; here's the log from the last time this happened(I was copying from one of the SATA drives to a PATA drive at the time):

I'll be honest, I don't know what to pick out of this that can point me in the right direction.

Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

According to the trace threads in the report, the kernel module is failing on the Partition reading->file locating->moving its failing when its checking the file on write and synchronis read. Its quite possible its either partition or filesystem errors, or physical drive errors.
