    Question fsck runs even when shutdown cleanly

    Hi all,

    I've noticed by turning of the plymouth splash screen that fsck runs (with the usual "INFO: recovery required on...") on my / filesystem even though the system shuts down cleanly without any apparent problems. This is lubuntu 13.10 beta1 here. Are there any specific log files I can inspect to find out if in fact the shutdown was clean or not? Thanks.

    Could it be related to the problem in this thread:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2175010

    because if you are getting random lockups, how are you shutting the system down cleanly?

    Re: fsck runs even when shutdown cleanly

    Of course I do expect fsck to run those times I hit the reset button!

    But there are times when it doesn't lockup till I shut down, and the messages printed to the console till the final moment seem normal to me, yet when I boot again it runs the filesystem check. I'll investigate the issue a little more and report back thanks.

    In any case because the shutdown seemingly did happen normally till final stages fsck doesn't find orphan inodes and such, as it does when I boot after a real lockup. Seems to be a minor bug...

    Do You, by any chance have file forcefsck in Your /...?
    If You do, just erase it...

    Nope I just checked.

    What's more just now I'd restarted cleanly after installing the latest updates, and there were no error or warning messages I could see, yet "INFO: recovery required..." on boot up!

    I hope this is resolved by the time we come to final release.

    Is there any log for the shutdown process, which I could inspect to see if the filesystems were cleanly unmounted or not? The messages flash by too quickly on the console...

    Code:
    sudo tune2fs -l /dev/???|grep Check
    Just to see what is set...
    ???=Your HDD
    I think that this bug struck me also, eventhough I have this value set to 0(=none)...

    Doing for my / partition:
    sudo tune2fs -l /dev/sda3|grep Check

    gives:
    Check interval: 0 (<none>)

    For comparison doing this on my 10.10 partition (sda1) gives:
    Check interval: 15552000 (6 months)

    Doing for the whole HDD:
    sudo tune2fs -l /dev/sda|grep Check

    gives:

    tune2fs: Bad magic number in super-block while trying to open /dev/sda
    Couldn't find valid filesystem superblock.

    Yeap, the same thing...
    It is bug somewhere else, I'll try to find, if I find time...

    Did you check "/var/log/fsck" logs. Mine says
    Code:
    (Nothing has been logged yet.)
    boot_info_script | AMD64 Athlon X2 Dual-Core - nVidia Geforce 6150 SE - 4GB DDR3
