    Red face why does my system do each backtrack restart a disk check ?

    (sorry for my english..!!)
    as i've wrote in the title at each restart of my phisical installation of bt5 r3 (it has a phisical portion of hd about 20gb) the system shows a list of checks like these shows below:

    fsck:/:1:checkingdisk %1$d of %2$d(%3$d%%complete)
    fsck:/:2:
    fsck:/:3:
    "" 4
    "" 5
    "" 6
    ....... until about 100 controls !!

    at the end of these controls the system is rebooted and start normally.
    boh...!!

    Hi. To disable the Check you can use this command:
    "tune2fs -c 0 /dev/sda*" -- or which ever partition your distro is located on. To do that type "fdisk -l"

    I would not recommend turning it off completely, I'd say 15-30 days is good, so, for me I would type, " tune2fs -c 30 /dev/sda1"..

    Also to know more about how to use the options you can use this command, "man tune2fs"..
    I hope that helps!

    Edit**
    Additonally/optionally you could also edit /etc/fstab.
    Code:
    pico /etc/fstab
    and look for a line similar to this
    Code:
    # <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
    proc            /proc           proc    nodev,noexec,nosuid 0       0
    # / was on /dev/sda6 during installation
    UUID=0000000-0000-0000-0000-00000000 /               ext4    errors=remount-ro 0       1
    where after remount-ro 0 1, you change the one to a zero to look like;
    Code:
    # <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
    proc            /proc           proc    nodev,noexec,nosuid 0       0
    # / was on /dev/sda6 during installation
    UUID=0000000-0000-0000-0000-00000000 /               ext4    errors=remount-ro 0      0

    Please read fstab: open up a terminal and type: man fstab, at the end, the sixth field of every line with UUID (Disk partition or OS) line controls the partition check-ups..You can edit the /etc/fstab and change that field to 0 (for UUID no check up).

    If you have severals UUID (Disk Partitions), you need to specify which ones are to be checked-up at boot, if you set all UUID to "0", then none will be checked up at boot. You decide which one is to be checked-up..

    But first read it as I told you..You need to know why things are done and how...

    It is pretty easy..Do not just take for granted what we all post to help, read..please. It for your own benefit my friend.

    Luck.
