Message 881333 - Posted: 1 Apr 2009, 17:06:49 UTC - in response to Message 881231.

4:15 in the A.M. here. Just woke up with a revelation..maybe. I've been playing with Linux for a while now, but messing with tune2fs is something I have not done. I do remember something about fstab though. At the end of the line, I think the default is "1 2" for the last two values. I don't feel like looking it up at the moment, but it has something to do with checking the file system. I know "0 0" is supposed to disable FS integrity verification. Could that be of any use now? I mean, you went and modified tune2fs already, but it could just be as simple as changing two values in fstab.

Just following up on my late-night thought.

A quick glance at 'man fstab' says the following about the last two values:

The fifth field, (fs_freq), is used for these filesystems by the dump(8) command to determine which filesystems need to be dumped. If the fifth field is not present, a value of zero is returned and dump will assume that the filesystem does not need to be dumped.

The sixth field, (fs_passno), is used by the fsck(8) program to determine the order in which filesystem checks are done at reboot time. The root filesystem should be specified with a fs_passno of 1, and other filesystems should have a fs_passno of 2. Filesystems within a drive will be checked sequentially, but filesystems on different drives will be checked at the same time to utilize parallelism available in the hardware. If the sixth field is not present or zero, a value of zero is returned and fsck will assume that the filesystem does not need to be checked.

So "0 0" should make the fsck routine become null and void unless you want to run it manually, which you can do on your own time. Maybe "1 0" would still be useful, but if that last field is zero it disables fsck'ing on mount.

"Clearly, all of this will go again with the next restart into the trousers."


:) that is a common German phrase :)
"Es ging in die Hose."
means it didn't work.
although the direct (literal?) translation goes:
"it went into the pants"

@Morpheus:

Gern gescheh'n :)

german grammar :)
in english grammar you would read:
"Clearly, all of this will go into the trousers again with the next restart."

still weird, but making a little more sense (if any) ;)
that's the problem if you try to translate complicated texts with Babelfish

Sometimes the english here around confuse me.. ;-D

Because the people don't use 'school english'.. it's more like "Umgangssprache" ['colloquial language'?].. ;-)


Nice greeting from Germany! :-D


EDIT:
BTW.
If I don't understand well.. the google-translater is a well friend.. ;-D
