Importance of fsck at boot with Journalled filesystems?view story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I noticed that XFS does not implement a fsck at system boot and one of the reasons touted in that journaling file-systems help ensure the file-system is in a consistent state after an unclean shutdown; on the next boot the journal is replayed. Is a fsck still needed after an unclean shutdown and why? (HowTos)

ext4 directory lists as a fileview story

dedicated crash dump deviceview story

http://www.unix.com – Hello Guys, I need a little help here. I have been studying crash dump and per what I am reading, you can dedicate a slice to use as a dump device. Now when you dedicate this slice, do you have to : 1) create a mount point? 2) add entry in /etc/vfstab? 3) is this slice wu or wm? 4) should it mount at boot? 5) should it be fsck? I really appreciate your help guys. Thanks lots (HowTos)
