Actually, it's *always* a surprise.  These fsck happen at long enough

Can't you write a small script to obviate the limitations of your human
memory, like this little hacker here did?


Why don't the systemd proponents understand that someone might want to
interrupt a running fsck? Don't scrutinize the reasons, just accept
the fact.
I understand it just fine. I just don't understand why this is a big
deal, as it could have been easily avoided.

This is a case of "Doctor, it hurts when I do this". "Well, don't do
that then".

What shouldn't I do? Boot my system?

use a journaling file system like ext4 ?? Of course that would require a major backup and restore, but that would get you the closest to where you want to be. How big is that harddrive any way?? It must be a monster drive for fsck to be an major issue. like for this guy:

...it is suggested there to use tune2fs (man tune2fs) before you shut down to go do your public display and reset the fsck counter. So, you can be in charge of your computer if you do it the way it likes you to be in charge.
