What does alloc magic broken mean?
I am running linux mint9 32bit on a desktop that I built with some luck. Anyway, in
the last couple of weeks it has been restarting itself randomly and at times I have to restart it several times. It also will just shut off for no apparent reason.
Which brings me to my question. It now appears that it will not boot again and I
get the message "alloc magic is broken at 0x7fe03a00 aborted. Press any key to exit" when a key is pressed it states it cannot find grub and to tell it where to boot
or insert bootable medium.
So what does "alloc magic is broken" mean? I can't find it anywhere.
I fear my hard drive is dead or there is a problem with the motherboard.
Sorry I can't give more detail but it quit again.
Thanks in advance for any help.
