    Do you think Mr. Carlos Slim Helu likes Linux?

    He (and family) just beat Mr. Bill Gates to the No.1 spot on the richest list.

    And he is into communications, according to the article.

    Since I wrote the post, the computer has not rebooted. Uptime is at 16 hours right now.

    Doug, I didn't try the fsck trick. Tell me, do you run fsck on the root partition only?

    Cheers,
    Swastik.
