Re: boot and shutown both suddenly getting delayed

Im having a similar problem on bootup, since about 4-5 days ago, ive found that if
any other ext2 file systems ( bar /, swap ) are mounted thru fstab, bootup just sits
mounting the file systems
The problem automagically dissapears when i disable the other partitions being
mounted at boot by using noauto etc. ( problem is repeatable  and with different
kernels including 2.0.36 as originally installed ?).

Im keeping up with potato, ( yeah i know unstable, but its probably safer to keep up
with new libs this way >;), and its still a lot easier to keep running than NT <grin>

I suspect it has something to do with a recent update ??.
Parallelizing fsck v1.16 22-10-1999 seems to be the last command printed to the
console when this happens and it never finishes mounting all drives.

Running a manual e2fsk reports no funnies and the system behaves normally when i
mount them manually

I have not noticed any problems on shutdown
