Re: Broken file system?

Ok, thanks. I read some stuff which said I should try and sort the bad sector. But I don't really understand how to do this (sorry!) . Is it necessary? How do I go about doing this? Could I just write zeroes to the whole partition, since I'm going to reinstall anyway? http://www.linuxquestions.org/q...

Re: Broken file system?

ok so ran fsck.ext4 on the partitions and it fixed them (I think) - now showing as clean.

gsmartcontrol after running another extended test still says 'passed with read failure' though. Does this mean I have to fix some bad blocks? Or safe to continue using the disk now?

Instead, It j...

Re: Installing gnome desktop environment

Hi kc1di, Actually, to be honest what I want to do is go on a cairo-dock session using gnome (when you install cairo-dock it adds a login uption called cairo-dock (gnome). This allows you to log onto to a desktop environment which has the cairo dock instead of the normal taskbars etc... I tried this...
