Why does FSCK runs at every boot in Lucid?

Asked by Christopher

A filesystem check is running with every boot of Lucid. Previous releases ran it about every 20 boots.

I don't see how the fast boot time can be achieved, unless this is a bug in my system. I have BUM installed and don't see anything there.

Boot to liveCD andhave the partition unmounted and then run:

sudo fsck -a /dev/<partition name here>

You can see the partition names with:

sudo parted -l

You can then fix the issue (-a fixes stuff) and this should stop the checks. The system is probably finding errors which is forcing the check.

Can you help with this problem?
