In a recent thread there was discussion about rebooting the computer 
after an upgrade.  As it was a kernel upgrade, this was deemed 
necessary.  My question is sort of related almost.

When I reboot, a fsck is done every thirty mountings of partitions.  I 
only reboot when I have a kernel upgrade, or the machine crashes too 
badly for me to sort out without a reboot.  So the fsck-ing only happens 
rarely.  How frequently *should* the partitions be fsck-ed?  Is there a 
way to do it *without* having to reboot?
