Unmounted file system???

Post by gu.. » Wed, 01 Sep 1993 09:40:30



Hello! (again),
        Upon booting a new install of Linux 0.99.9 I get the message
"Warning, mounting unchecked file system. Running mke2fs is reccomended."
        Anyone know exactly why that appears and how to correct this
problem? In other versions of Unix I've had the mkfs in the rc at boottime.
Is that what I need to do here??
                                                Thanx much!

 Re again ...

 You should read the messages your machine writes on the screen more
 carefully :)
 The message is: Running e2fsck is recommended.
 I don't believe, that you want to wipe your disk at boot-time by installing
 a new file system via mkfs ...

 Now to the point: get the file bootutils-0.1.tar.gz from any linux-ftp-site
 unpack the file and follow the instructions in the READMEs. That will help
 you.

                                                    ^^^^^^
                                                 This must be: e2fsck

You've made the filesystem by running _mke2fs /device_ and not _mke2fs -c /device_,
so at generationtime you didn't make a file system check.
It also is helpfull (and recommended) to run e2fsck on every bootuptime out of
the /etc/rc.

Bye

   so at generationtime you didn't make a file system check.

Ummm...the -c switch causes mke2fs to check for bad blocks on the disk (though I'm
not sure what the difference is between the -c and -t switches in this respect, anybody
know ?). The reason for the message is that the root file system is never really
unmounted on shutdown, so when you reboot mount sees the root file system as not
having been unmounted cleanly and suggests you run e2fsck on it...big discussion
over a long period of time on this exact thing...

   It also is helpfull (and recommended) to run e2fsck on every bootuptime out of
   the /etc/rc.
