NSLU2-Linux

Why does my NSLU2 suddenly take so long (4 minutes or more) to reboot

The OS keeps a record of how many reboots since the last fsck.ext3 of the disk. When the NSLU2 reboots from hard disk with the uNSLUng firmware it checks the state of the external disk. If you have passed the maximum number of reboots the system will do a "quick" check that takes about 4 minutes - This behaviour will continue until you manually scan the disk - Using the instructions from FAQ RepairingDiskErrors.
