Re: [parisc-linux] HP B132L hangs
Yes it looks like a disk becoming defective. The best way to be sure is
to use a hp cdrom containing Diagnostic tools (iirc the last hpux
support + would contains it). This cd is bootable and contains tools
allowing you test your disk.
I don't have such a cd...
I have only two HP cd sets:
"HP-UX Applications/Patches 10.20" 5 CDs
"Additional Core Enhancements HP-UX 10.20 Workstations" 1 CD
Do you know if one of them contains these tools?
If you have another system on which you can connect your suspected disk
you can also try a dd cmd like:
dd if=/dev/rdsk/c0txd0 of=/dev/null bs=2048k (where you replace
/dev/rdsk/c0txd0 by the actual disk path)
See my other post for results of backup... it provoced the same (or at
least a similar) error :-/
I do not currently have another system I could put the disk in (I got a
C200 but it is not in a working state right now). The disk does not
contain too important data - but it was a lot of work to set up the router.
