OK, but even if there's nothing else to do but a clean install, before
I back up (hoping tar isn't corrupted either...) how can I find out
exactly what is broken (sw, hw...)? If nothing else, to report a bug,
be sure that it's just a sw and not hardware problem? Also because if
the _disk_ is broken, there's little point to reinstall on it, is
there?
