Description magill 1999-01-05 19:51:15 UTC
'shutdown -F' touches /forcefsck in order to force an fsck
of all filesystems on reboot.  The init scripts should
notice this file and execute the fsck -- they do not.  It is
currently impossible to force an fsck of all filesystems at
boot time.  This functionality is insensive to the
filesystem type.  This functionality worked on a previous
version of
RedHat.

There is a reference to a /fsckoptions file in the init
scripts, but this file is almost useless as it passes its
options to all filesystems which is generally not
appropriate.
