Subject: [gentoo-user] running e2fsck pre-mount
Date: Wed, 09 Sep 2009 02:37:51
1 Hi group,
3 On an Asus netbook during boot after the line
5 *checking all filesystems
7 there'll be a message something like 'filesystem mounted 36 times
8 without being checked. Check forced' then something like '17.1%
9 non-contiguous' then a long delay. Then one of two things, either a
10 message saying 'errors fixed' or a forced reboot.
12 What does it mean 'without being checked' Does the boot process expect
13 a filesystem check, in this case e2fsck? Why should their be errors. I
14 shut the machine like this '#shutdown -h(or -r) now' Everything is
15 unmounted and the machine turns off without a glitch that I''m aware
16 of.
18 How can I run e2fsck on the drives *before* they are mounted, if that
19 is what is required here?
