The root filesystem is fscked EVERY time Beta4 boots,
except possibly the first time. Messages on screen
Checking root filesystem
/1 not cleanly unmounted, check forced.
[followed by the fsck output]
This is a fresh "Custom" install of Beta4 with the default package set.
The behavior is the same when all optional packages are excluded.
To exclude other factors, I rebooted several times immediatly after
installing, without logging in. Same results - fsck each time.
RH6.2 agrees that this Beta4 root partition needs checking:
When RH6.2 is booted on this multiboot machine,
it gives the SAME messages about the Beta4 root partition.
Here is the RH6.2 fstab entry:
/dev/hda7 /betaroot ext2 defaults,noauto 1 2 # Beta4 root
RH6.2 does the fsck only once after each Beta4 bootup.
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Release-Candidate #1
... I think this was fixed for beta-5, but I'm flagging it so we make sure.
Does beta5 work for you? It should...
This bug does appear to be fixed in Beta 5!
