Re: journal commit i/o errors

Does anyone have any ideas on how I can track this issue down? From what I can tell, it's either a motherboard problem or a kernel bug/issue, but there may be something I'm overlooking that might be causing this.

Posting the actual text of system logs, and info about the hardware - eg
what controller. Most likely its a drive failing.

There's nothing logged in the logs after the journal commit error because the kernel makes the drive read-only at that point. Most of the time I'm not able to run anything either - I just get a generic "input/output" error message. I haven't tried running dmesg when the problem happens; would anything useful come out of that?

There's only one hard drive in the system, and I replaced it a week or so ago with a brand new drive. Although anything is possible, I doubt that the new drive is exhibiting the same problems as the old drive.

The motherboard chipset is a VIA VT8237. The kernel says it's using the pata_via drivers:
