View Full Version : [ubuntu] System hangs at reboot *after* fsck

November 13th, 2012, 03:16 PM
I am having an annoying problem where a server sometimes hangs for a long, long time during a reboot. This usually happens when the server has not been rebooted for a while.

After the fsck, there is no output for a long time. The screen looks like this:

fsck from util-linux 2.20.1
/dev/sda1: clean, 928681/8921088 files, 4273469/24683840 blocksIt's hard to see what exactly is wrong, because no indication is given as to what the server is doing. After it has finally booted (which can take a few hours), rebooting it works just fine.

Have you looked at dmesg to view the whole boot process after it's done booting?
