o4o offtopic-#kubuntu-offtopic offtopic4offtopic offtopic-#xubuntu-offtopic offtopic-#ubuntu-offtopic religion sex ot4ot 040 drugs politics-#ubuntu-offtopic rock&roll-#ubuntu-offtopic suicide <reply>Some topics are controversial and often end in negativity. Take care on subjects like war, race, religion, politics, gender, sexuality, drugs, potentially illegal activities and suicide. The topics are not banned; stating your position is ok, but trolling, baiting, hostility or repetition are not. If you are asked to stop, do so politely. Disputes to !appeals, please adhere to !freenode Policy and the !CodeOfConduct LjL

fsck the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo touch /forcefsck && sudo shutdown -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot LjL
