Does anyone know of a faster way to scan IDE drives for bad blocks?
Failing that, does anyone know of a way to turn bad block reports
in /var/log/messages into numbers I can feed to fsck from time to
time? I'm running e2fsck -c on a 40GB partition right now and it
looks like it's going to take 10 hours to complete.
Better still, when is someone going to fix ext so that it
automatically flags bad blocks when it finds them? I'd love to do
it myself but IBM says I can't ;-(
