    [ubuntu] Re: Recovering lost ext4 partition

    What does the SMART data show? Until that data is seen, it isn't possible to know if the disk issue is trivial or that disk is about to totally fail.

  8. Re: FIDO2 Passwordless WebAuthn Linux support ?

    I am clueless, but not using passwords violates the entire idea of 2FA, doesn't it?

    [kubuntu] Re: Slow response - RAID problem?

    Looks like a bad cable on one of the disks or a failing controller port. I'd take the array off line. It looks likely that corrupted data is being written.
