Another dead hard disk
Another disk drive died today. This one was the system disk of my HTPC which runs Gentoo. I first noticed the problem when it dropped off the network and then was taking forever to rip a DVD. Rebooting only made things worse, Grub couldn't find the kernel. Uh oh!
So I'm in the process of trying to see if I can recover anything using information I found about using dd with disk errors:
Next I will have to do a fresh new install of Gentoo, what a pain.Â
