    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
