Have some patience! The test is still running.

No error above, you probably issued a SMART command that aborted the
previous test. Or rebooted the computer. Or your controller is quirky.
> # 7 Extended off-line Completed: read failure 20% 47007 0x042798c1
This test found that sector 0x042798c1 is bad.
> 197 Current_Pending_Sector 0x0012 100 100 000 Old_age Always - 1
> 198 Offline_Uncorrectable 0x0010 100 100 000 Old_age Offline - 1
As confirmed by these attributes... 1 bad sector found in the raw column.
> 5 Reallocated_Sector_Ct 0x0033 100 100 024 Pre-fail Always - 8589934592000
8589934592000 == 0x7d000000000
smartmontools doesn't know how to decode this raw value, but "100 100"
means that it should be perfectly fine.

The next time you write to this bad sector, it will probably be
reallocated by the disk firmware. No big deal, these do happen
occasionally. Only when you have suddenly increasing values, there's
reason to worry.
Please, do some research yourself before shooting for the mailing
lists. Or buy commercial support for your Linux distribution vendor.
