A couple of days ago one of my debian boxes developed problems in it's swap,
and squid brought the system down. I made a new swap space and everything,
but now there are some problems;
* fsck is called twice during bootup.This is fine the first time, but the second
time it' called all the filesystems are mounted and fsck exits with an error.
I'm then asked to press Ctrl-D to continue. For a server machine that I don't
want to connect to a monitor/keybaord this ain't ideal ;)
* The runlevel comes out as unknown.
* When the system goes down for reboot, it doesn't seem to unmount partitions
any more. which means fsck has to run fully on a lot of disk space.
Anyone have an idea what gives?
