comment I can read from hard disk, but I can't mount it read only
The fact that the device has the .01 extension indicates that you have the controller set in IDE emulation mode and it is pretending the sata disk is an IDE slave drive. This prevents proper error diagnosis. Going into the bios and putting the controller into AHCI mode should at least get you better, proper, SATA error messages.

That is to say, that generally fan control is done in hardware and is outside of control for the os.

comment Can I mount half an ext4 partition
What do you mean "migrated"? If it was raid0, then you only have every other block of data if one of two drives failed, which is useless. If it was just concatenated drives, then you may be able to recover some of it.

Check df. You probably have a tmpfs mounted somewhere that has filled up.

You realize that it is marked as a dependency because it won't work without it?

comment Error attempting to use Subversion after upgrade: Segmentation fault
Assuming you are running the official debian package of subversion, you need to report a bug to debian. Also, stop using subversion and move to a modern DVCS, like git, bzr, or hg ;)

comment What is a socket?
tcp/ip is only one kind of socket. There are others that have nothing to do with tcp/ip.

comment Transfering large (8 GB) files over ssh
It looks like CentOS is broken in that they didn't build the 32 bit ssh client with large file support as Mark Plotnick mentioned. You should file a bug report with CentOS.

comment What is the correct way to set up sw RAID1 so either drive boots?
@kiwisan, there is no reason swap has to be on a partition tagged with the swap ID ( in fact linux doesn't care at all about partition type IDs ), so you simply mkswap and swapon the /dev/mdXX raid1 device instead of the partition on the disk.

@kiwisan, you need to have a 1 mb bios_grub partition or grub will complain loudly or fail to install.
