Ahh, I see, and I have such a file now. It will now be quite a few reboots before I see if that helped though, about 20 to go I believe.

Totally disabling the volume control and makeing the resultant audio badly distorted and tinny as hell.
You can add forcefsck as a parameter to the kernel boot line (e.g. in grub) to force a filesystem check I think. Or create a file /forcefsck
The /fsckoptions and /forcefsck files will get erased at each reboot btw.

What has that got to do with forcing a filesystem check?
Gene doesn't want to disable the filesystem check, he just wants it to be more verbose so it's clear that the system hasn't hung.
