    Subject: kernel logs data request errors

    Package: kernel-image
    Version: 2.0.30-1

    Under certain circumstances the following messages are
    logged into "/var/log/messages":

    May 5 10:02:28 dirac kernel: end_request: I/O error, dev 03:06, sector

    Last night the machine rebooted itself and got stuck while
    booting due to some kernel panic. Colleagues told me
    that there were similiar messages print out onto the console
    as the ones above.
    Therefore I had to reboot the system. As proposed during boot
    I was prompted to do a filesystemcheck manually on /dev/hda6.
    /dev/hda is a 1.6 GB Western Digital EIDE disk with patched
    firmware. Other mass storage media are connected via SCSI
    Adaptec2940:

    Quantum Fireball 2GB
    Fujitsu 1GB
    external SONY CDROM 4x
    external HP DDS (DDS2 maybe, don't know now)
    external IOMEGA ZIP

    After all I fiddled around a bit and tried out some programs
    which worked fine until I got the upper message print out on
    console. I immediately rebooted the system with no problems.
    Afterwards I removed a printjob (initiated from WIN95 via
    SAMBA, driving lprng). This job took about 45 megabyte memory
    (during all that printing of this special job was reinitiated
    and progressed). The person who invoked the printjob told me
    about some problems that he had with the server in accepting
    his job (/tmp is a link to /var/tmp, /dev/hda6 is mounted on
    /var and of 245861 kB size with about 213613 kB free if there
    are no printjobs).

    Since I've removed this 45 MB job (about six hours ago),
    no problems occured and the system is stable so far.

    Possible reasons might be - although I'm not certain:

    1) I recompiled the kernel (kernel-source-2.0.30-1) myself
    and unset some of the hardware flags in make config (workarounds
    for some buggy chipsets). I did this because I'm using a
    Gigabyte 586 board with Intels HX chipset.

    2) The harddisk got corrupted? I consider this, because of the
    above described happenings.

    3) Something completely different, which I haven't even thought
    about.

    Do you have any comments?

    Here is the output of
    ~#hdparm /dev/hda

    /dev/hda:
    multcount = 0 (off)
    I/O support = 0 (default 16-bit)
    unmaskirq = 0 (off)
    using_dma = 0 (off)
    keepsettings = 0 (off)
    nowerr = 0 (off)
    readonly = 0 (off)
    readahead = 8 (on)
    geometry = 787/64/63, sectors = 3173184, start = 0

    Out system is:

    - Debian-1.2.13 with some bo packages (mainly user
    packages, no system ones except lprng) installed.

    - libc.so.5.4.20
