I woke up this morning with a screen fully filled with that text, written on a beautiful white on blue:
wd0a: uncorrectable data error reading fsbn 3874778 (wd0 bn 3874841; cn 961 tn 1 sn 26), retrying
I rebooted with a floppy disk to do a fsck (-f because the system was marked clean) and it deleted one useless file using that sector. I did a second fsck and the only error I got was:
CANNOT READ: BLK 3874736
and the same "white on blue" error than above, repeated a lot of time.
So I assume that this is my first bad sector (on this disk). Am I right?
If so, is this possible to tell to OpenBSD to not use this sector anymore?
