When I boot under linux, periodically (occasionally under Potato, frequently now that I’ve installed a fresh copy of Woody) I get
Boot: (linux selected)
Loading Linux…………………… (24, count ‘em)
I believe crc is ‘cyclic redundancy check’ which I take to mean a hard drive read error
Does this imply that my IBM Deskstar 32gb hdd, a friend these last 3 ½ years, is increasingly showing symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease? Am I indeed unwise to continue to use it and should instead install linux on one of my newer drives? Or can some lilo (or other) setting be tweaked to resolve this?
Thus far, my workaround is to power down, wait a bit, and I can restart fine
