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



NAME
       fastboot, fasthalt - reboot/halt the system while disabling disk check-
       ing

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/etc/fastboot [ boot-options ]

       /usr/etc/fasthalt [ halt-options ]

DESCRIPTION
       fasthalt halts the system (like halt(8)) and fastboot reboots the  sys-
       tem  (like reboot(8)).  Both these programs disable subsequent checking
       of the file systems on the next reboot.  This is  done  by  creating  a
       file  /fastboot.  The system startup script /etc/rc looks for this file
       and, if present, skips the normal invocation of fsck(8).

FILES
       /usr/etc/fastboot
       /etc/rc
       /fastboot

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