    Purple writing i cannot read!

    Hi All,

    Just a quick question, i am booting my mythbuntu box and I can see some purple writing at the bottom of the screen during boot-i cannot read it due to my very average screen res.

    I presume it is checking the HD or downloading updates, can someone confirm? (it boots normally if i hit esc during this)

    Thanks!

    It is an disk check, simular to windows checkdisk, let it finish if it happens again. It'll contine booting when done.

    Yes, my system seems to want to do a check every 15 boots. I'm sure this is configurable, but it's no great shakes. I think if you cancel it, it will just keep on trying at each boot until you let it complete.
