SubjectUnexpected shutdowns
Hi,

We are building an embedded system using the Redhat 4.2 release. There
is no console
and no provision for alerting the system of impending shutdown. The
target environment
will have, typically, no power outages. However, the processor card may
be extracted
from the card cage, killing the system without warning.

The system files are installed on a flash device, and the majority of
the data files are
read-only. So far, the only file system errors resulting from improper
shutdown have
been on the partition where system logs are stored.

Is there any way to completely disable the system logs?
Is there any way to log to ramdisk, so that corruption does not exist on
restart?
Better yet, is there some recovery scheme that does not require console
intervention?
(apparently the file system check will not run unattended)

thanks,
michael
