LLE10122 : Posix error 5: Input/output error

Symptom:

You get the error message: Input/output error

Cause:

none

Solution:

This can be due to filesystem problems.

ls filename
Input/output error

Unmounting and doing a check (fsck.ext2 or fsck.ext3) might help.

When you have a CD or DVD then the media might have problems. (e.g. scratches)

When you get the error by using dd

e.g.
dd if=/dev/hda1|gzip -1 -v > backup-of-hda1.gz

Then you probably have problems with sectors on your disk. Most of the time you will find a device error in your syslog when this happens.
