Re: problems with server dying. -- addition.
just a quick question as i'm trying to close in on this server problem.
if you mount a drive as /dev/hdc instead of /dev/hdc1 what are the
Check this out:
godzilla:/# fdisk /dev/hdc
The number of cylinders for this disk is set to 33525.
This is larger than 1024, and may cause problems with:
1) software that runs at boot time (e.g., LILO)
2) booting and partitioning software form other OSs
(e.g., DOS FDISK, OS/2 FDISK)
Command (m for help): p
Disk /dev/hdc: 16 heads, 63 sectors, 33525 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 1008 * 512 bytes
Device Boot Begin Start End Blocks Id System
Command (m for help): q
However the drive still works, still mounts, and data is still able to be
copied onto the drive! running an fsck on the drive brought up a monstrous
amount of problems, so i'm quite sure this is not the right way to do it.
However, could something like this crash a machine? What are the
consequences of mounting /dev/hdc instead of /dev/hdc1?
