I just thought of a different approach, using the fact that one can
manipulate the "Maximum mount count" without having to umount the
filesystem: write a script that always sets the "Maximum mount count" to
'0' or '-1' late during the boot (e.g. via rc.local or @reboot in the

With this one can easily trigger a manual check on the next reboot with
a simple:

     tune2fs -c 1 /dev/sdXY

and the script will reset "Maximum mount count" immediately after, so
you don't get a check on every reboot ;)

Kind regards,

Whoa! And I get the answer just handed to me!

Now how am I supposed to learn anything when you just spoon-feed me?


You know, I had been staring at tune2fs for a while and didn't come up with such a possibility -- mainly, I suppose, because I'm not used to using home-made scripts. I do almost everything by hand these days.

You have to love the power of scripting.
