Re: UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLY...help
Eep. That's pretty unusual, I've had to hard reboot my boxes on a variety of occasions with no ill effects. Of course all my machines use real, non-lvm partitions on a DOS table.
Often the only way to do a job right is to do a laughable job at it.
My advice is generally cheap and saturated with laziness, but it might work, or I wouldn't have posted it.
