On Sunday (03/10/2010) my laptop has a bad crash. The screen went blank, I could still see the cursor and move it around but could do nothing else. I could not even login on a virtual console, after I typed the user name it came straight back with a login prompt again.
I learned over the years to read the old ide subsystem errors for Linux and genrally am able to get a feel for the sort of hardware error thats coming. However I have yet to really get a feel for the libata errors, I’m not really used to reading the errors.
