Force fsck

Force fsck on a jfs filesystem is the same like on ext2/3/4
Just create the forcefsck file in the root directory and reboot.
Simplest way:

touch /forcefsck

and then reboot.

After this, all local hard-disks were checked during boot.
The file is then removed.

5 years linux 5 years happines

Now i reach the 5 years border,
5 years linux,
5 years debian
5 years with things i will never miss again....
no thinking which driver to use
no thinking about firewall or antivirus software
no thinking about updates
no thinking about the ram because everything over 512 is fine
no thinking about how large the harddisk is. everything over 20gb is fine.
no thinking about defragmentation
no thinking about open ports

The first 3 month were realy hard. in this time the change to linux
show me how less i know about computer, network and operating systems.
But then the knowledge explode.

Now i will never go back to another operating system.

Installing Debian Squeeze on encryptes lvm takes long time

Installing Debian on an encrypted lvm
takes on a dual core cpu and 80gb hard-disk
about 3 hours to delete the disk.

fsck died with error code 1 on ext3 fs

Same problem with ext3 after reset.
During booting come the message
fsck died with error code1
Have no idea what happens in this situation
