We've been deploying fanless PCs for a research study. Some of these are having HD issues as their OS runs from an SD card. I'm seeing cases where I need to
fsck a folder or two.
I've tried using
shutdown -rF now but it doesn't seem to be doing the trick. There are notes in the syslog that say stuff was fixed but it doesn't appear to be. Also the order of events in the syslog makes it sound like the OS was fully up when the fsck was done (IE fs was mounted). Certainly not a good thing.
Any suggestions on other ways to fix this without having to do service calls and replace the units?
OS: debian 6.x
Note: I did see this. Gave me the notion for the shutdown command but it doesn't seem to be working properly (or I'm not using it properly).
