    Question System check?

    Good Morning,

    I have a question, after a fresh Ubuntu install & apps needed is there some way, commands etc to check the OS/file system/kernels etc.

    Just to have a peace of mind that all done is correct.

    Btw Ubuntu is running fine, just feel it a bit bloated not as crisp after I run BleachBit the previously?

    Thanks.

    fsck checks and repairs file systems.

    It should only be used on unmounted file systems.

    How does one unmount a system & remount a system?

    Re: System check?

    You can mount and umount with the programs 'mount' and 'umount', but it is not safe to work on a live system. Better to use the Live DVD (desktop) and work from that.

    What are you trying to do?
