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
-i  interval-between-checks[d|m|w]
              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

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.
