Switch to a filesystem that uses journaling to prevent lengthy fscks,
and allows for single partitions. Switch to a filesystem whose fsck
application is not so memory intensive, and allows for single
partitions. Stop uncleanly unmounting partitions, such that lengthy
fscks are no longer necessary. Buy more memory for your MythTV system,
or failing that, buy a new MythTV system such that you can buy more
memory for it
Could you give a bit more detail about this system with insufficient
memory to run fsck? I had no trouble running a fsck on a 2TB EXT3
partition earlier this week using my laptop. My laptop still has the
same 384MB of memory it shipped with when I bought it over 10 years ago.
