RFE: Jump to details mode or give more textual feedback when fsck check is forced due to check interval expiration
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:47 EST
Description of problem:
Let's say i have a /home partition where Check interval
as listed from tune2fs -l is set to 180 days,
I reboot at 181 days and fsck at boot does a check of the parition,
rhgb will sit there in graphical mode without any feedback as to what
is going on. This is definitely a case where an average user might
think the boot process is stuck..churning harddrive... and reboot.
I understand that check interval isnt set for fedora installed
partitions, but people do have secondary disks with paritions created
by other means and other distributions even. So its not inconcievable
that I'm the only person whose going to run into this. In fact the
partition im using that triggered this was created from a rh 7.3
install, and i just moved the disk which is all storage into a new fc2
Everytime i've let the check interval expire.
set a short check interval via tune2fs and reboot after the interval
has expired... watch in horror as rhgb doesn't jump to details view
as fsck forces a check of the partition.
1) rhgb jumps to details view so you can see the text message from
fsck about the forced check
2) some verbosity in rhgb's graphical text strings about whats going
on and why, while i wait for the harddrive light to stop flickering
like a sputtering candle.
Already adressed in #107121, rhgb-0.13.1 and a fix to initscripts
should really improve this,
