The problem is: I did not notice the expected 'e2fsck' running,
however it should run (since 3 months). And there is the warning
message that fsck is needed.

Q. How can I set 'e2fsck' to run, whenever I want ?

(I know that one should not run fsck on a mounted partition,
so it's not that easy to run it...)
