diskscan is intended to find sectors of a storage medium (hard disk, flash drive or pendrive, etc.) which are bad or in the process of going bad. The operation is entirely read-only and does not cause damage to the data on filesystems. As the program reads block device sectors, it will work whether there is a filesystem or not. diskscan reads the entire block device and notes the time it took to read a block. When there is an error it is immediately noted and also when there is a higher latency to read a block. A histogram of the block latency times is also given to assess the health of the medium. diskscan can also be used to test the speed and quality of the medium. All sectors of a perfect medium could be read at the same speed.

Using debian/distclean.sh. * debian/control: - Added cmake to Build-Depends field. - Removed ctags, ninja-build, python-beautifulsoup and python-markdown from Build-Depends field. * debian/copyright: updated an information about the packaging. * debian/dirs: not useful now. Removed. * debian/distclean.sh: added to remove some files forgotten by upstream after the build process. * debian/rules: - Added the override_dh_clean target to call the debian/distclean.sh script. - Removed the override_dh_auto_clean, override_dh_auto_clean and override_dh_auto_install targets. - Removed the 'V' variable (unneeded now).
2015-11-02 - Joao Eriberto Mota Filho <firstname.lastname@example.org> diskscan (0.17-1) unstable; urgency=medium * New upstream release. (Closes: #803794) * debian/clean: removed previous names and added new entries to remove some files forgotten by upstream when cleaning the source code. * debian/control: added libncurses5-dev and zlib1g-dev to Build-Depends field. * debian/copyright: updated some information about the upstream. * debian/patches: removed. The upstream fixed the source code. Thanks. * debian/rules: - Added the target override_dh_auto_clean to remove the directory 'built', forgotten by upstream. - Added the target override_dh_auto_configure to run a single 'configure' command. * debian/source/options: removed.
