Kernel Errors

Can anyone help me decipher this log entry?

WARNING: Kernel Errors Present
end_request: I/O error, dev hdc, sector...: 3 Time(s)
vesafb: probe of vesafb0 failed with error -6...: 1 Time(s)

The thing is, here's my partition info:

Disk /dev/hda: 15.3 GB, 15393079296 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 1871 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux
/dev/hda2 14 523 4096575 83 Linux
/dev/hda3 524 778 2048287+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda4 779 1871 8779522+ 83 Linux

Disk /dev/hdb: 41.1 GB, 41110142976 bytes
16 heads, 63 sectors/track, 79656 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 1008 * 512 = 516096 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hdb1 * 1 2032 1024096+ 82 Linux swap
/dev/hdb2 2033 79656 39122496 83 Linux

There is no hdc. Why the Kernel complaint? Thanks for any help.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

I'm closing this thread, the one in Linux - General remains open:
