Description of problem:
Maybe this is a hardware problem, I don't know. But last time my hard
drive had bad performance, it was Magicdev.
Tvelve days ago, my hard drive started to make a clicking noise, and
speeded up and down (sounds like a cd-rom), and when this happens, the
computer hangs for a few seconds.
The problem disappeared for some days, but is back now.
I have tested the hard drive, and it passed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start reading data from hard drive.
My computer is a dell inspiron 8200.
The 'dev' package contains the device nodes in /dev, and doesn't
actually access any hardware devices directly. Bouncing to 'kernel',
where there might be some clue.
are there any errors/warnings in dmesg output after its done this
speeding up / slowing down ? It does smell like a hardware fault to me.
