FASTBOOT(8)                 System Manager's Manual                FASTBOOT(8)



NAME
       fastboot, fasthalt - reboot/halt the system without checking the disks

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/fastboot [ boot-options ]
       /etc/fasthalt [ halt-options ]

DESCRIPTION
       Fastboot  and fasthalt are shell scripts which reboot and halt the sys-
       tem without checking the file systems.  This is done by creating a file
       /fastboot,  then  invoking  the  reboot  program.   The  system startup
       script, /etc/rc, looks for this file and, if present, skips the  normal
       invocation of fsck(8).

SEE ALSO
       halt(8), reboot(8), rc(8)
