Five minute question
Hi, I know that this isn't a place for a Mandriva-kind of question, but I think I have a hard-disk failure:
I've been trying to install Mandriva together with Windows, did the partitioning and the installation, yet when I'm trying to boot up the system I'm getting fsck error , as I remember some signal 11 and the system reboots. It won't let fsck to do anything, only some "superblocks are written in the future". I've checked the installtion's media but that's O.K.
I never met this problem so far. Please!

I had a quick Google around and a SIG11 fault is a segmentation error:
Signal 11, or officially know as "segmentation fault", means that the program accessed a memory location that was not assigned. That's usually a bug in the program. From here.
It looks like you need to find some way of testing your system to get an indication of what's really wrong. It could be your hdd or your memory, or a software problem. My money's on your hardware.I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso

but the nightmare continues. Today I've tried to install from another DVD but no use. Wiped all again with PartedMagic, installed again but there's a failure again. I suspect to the HD. Still I'm angry, cos the Windows installs on it.
The other suspected thing is the motherboard.
She'll buy another HD and we'll see. Could it cause the trouble? The error message :"BAD EIP VALUE
Warning... fsck.ext3 for device /dev/hda5 exited with signal 11"
Sometimes even the Windows reboots unintendly .
EDIT: The PC crashed very often during the process of installation too. (2-3 minutes before the end)
I've tried Mandriva 2008 One CD and Ubuntu Gutsy live session. The Mandriva 2008 won't boot up for the same reason, with same error code around ext3 on /dev/hda5.
Gutsy did boot, but when I ran the partitioning tool, and the file system check on /dev/hda5 it issued an error message about it.

You should try the hard drive checking tools that are provided by your hard drive manufacturer.
Just go to there website and download the the necessary tools.
Moved to "Installation"How to know if you are a geek.
when you respond to "get a life!" with "what's the URL?"
