e2fsck hangs while recovering journal



Hi,

It seems one of my computers died last night and it looks like hard disk
trouble. I took the disk out and attached to another system and tried to
mount the partition, but the mount doesn't complete and just hangs
(process is also unkillable - I had to reboot).

So, I tried to run "fsck -fccp /dev/sda2" but the command just hangs
after printing "/dev/sda2: recovering journal". Now I'm pretty sure this
is because there's bad blocks on the disk, as dmesg shows some disk
errors (see attached file). Google tells me status 0x59 means a bad
block.

I tried to remove the journal to see if the fsck could get any further
by using "tune2fs -f -O^has_journal /dev/sda2", but it just told me to
recover the journal first (despite using -f).

Anyway, I'm kind of stuck. Can anyone give me any clues as to how I can
get this filesystem mounted for long enough to try and recover some
data?

Thanks,
Kevin.
