Re: stop automatic checkdisk on boot
Hi, what is your filesystem on this partition ?
I don't very well, but maybe you can see the tune2fs command,
for example <tune2fs -l > (for ext2/3/4) list the current values of your filesystem :
~]# tune2fs -l /dev/sda6
Last checked: Fri Feb 5 11:48:41 2010
Check interval: 15552000 (6 months)
And you can use the same command to change it:
~]# man tune2fs
Adjust the maximal time between two filesystem checks. No postfix or d result in days, m in months, and w
in weeks. A value of zero will disable the time-dependent checking.

Every 20 odd boots my system does a checkdisk scan of sda5 (root file
system) and sda7 /home. As it's a laptop and I need fast booting, how
can I stop these checks all together? I tried setting the 6th field of
fstab to 0 for both partitions. I thought it was working, but it seemed
to do one check just before, so I'm concerned it's not working. Or is
this just a one off? It's possible I failed to shutdown the machine
correctly. I forget now.
