Can't help you on speed, but `tune2fs -c 0 /dev/hdx` disables automatic checks that happen every n mounts. But as long as you're doing that, you may as well `tune2fs -j /dev/hdx` to make it ext3. =) (Make sure you update fstab though)Hi, I am using Kernel 2.6.5 and Debia Sarge. During the boot process fsck 1.35 is checking my filesystems when they have been mounted couple times. When my linux installation was "fresh" this process took just some seconds. But since I have made some upgrades it now takes very long approx. 5 min (depending on size of partition). Any hints how to solve this problem?
