While working on getting software raid working, I was
unable to shutdown CentOS normally. After a forced power
shutdown, I noticed that my gnome background was missing
and I could not change the background image or color.
Trying to shutdown the server normally did not work either,
it would just hang. I suspected that the file system was
damaged and was not fixed automaticly on boot. I tried the
old Red Hat trick of creating an empty file with the name
"fsckcheck" in the root directory and then forcing a reboot
of the server. This seems to fix the problem with the file
system. Any comments?
