Raising Skinny Elephants Is Utterly Boring
I just learned how to shut down my machine (on those rare occasions when it freezes) using the magic SysReq key + alt + RSEIUB, in that order. However, even using the RSEIUB when the system is rebooting I see a message, "system was shut down abnormally. Press y to do a system check" (or something to that effect. When I let it reboot without the forced check I do not get the "lost + found" folders created. When I press Y and force a system check, then the "lost + found" folders are created. Any ideas why it still acts like an incorrect shutdown even using the RSEIUB? Am I doing something wrong or is this normal?
