    FSCK every time I boot

    Ever since my last update (approx 24 hrs ago) whenever I boot/restart Ubu, the HD is checked for errors.

    This used to happen (like) every 100 starts (never paid much attention to it). But, now it happens every time.

    Anybody else experiencing this

    Not causing a prob... just curious.

    It is a problem. It probably means that your filesystems are not unmounting properly before the system shuts down and are "dirty".

    I had this happen to my system last year when VMware stuffed up the install of VMware Player/Workstation and corrupted the order of the /etc/rcx.d startup and shutdown scripts so that the system shut down before the unmounting was completed.

    I reboot several times a day, and haven't had an issue with fsck, yet.

    Re: Just me? | FSCK every time I boot

    This has been happening to me for a few weeks. I'm on 11.10 Xubuntu. I don't know how to fix the problem, so I've just been hitting "I" to ignore the results. Can anyone point me in the direction of some tutorial or other to help me fix this?

    Otherwise, my solution is a clean install of 12.04 in a few months.

    This happens every time I boot up my LAMP VM. I was wondering about it too. It begins an fsck and then cancels it automatically.

    Not me either..

    Interesting I do check the counts on all my partitions before Cloning with
    Code:
    sudo dumpe2fs -h /dev/sda5 | grep -i 'mount count'
    I just increment the sda5 to sda7 through however many partitions I have at the time.

    You can change the max counts to whatever you like with

    Code:
    sudo tune2fs -c 30 /dev/sda5
    I believe if you set the number to -1 you will never get a fsck on boot. Don't quote me on that one.

    There are two limits--days and mounts since last check.
    If you disable the per-n mounts check, it will just count a certain number of days (180, IIRC)--you'd need to disable that check as well.

    Both are exceptionally stupid things to do.

    The boot fsck is always done for a reason, either fix the underlying reason or risk data loss through a corrupt filesystem.
