Description Eric Sandeen 2012-04-20 18:30:45 EDT
See also [Bug 748920] Setting back time breaks boot

I've added /etc/e2fsck.conf to the e2fsprogs package, but to make the change effective for the root fs at boot time, /etc/e2fsck.conf will need to be present in the initramfs.

This was bandied about a as a blocker for F17, so I guess it's high-ish priority?

Since /etc/e2fsck.conf didn't exist before, you might need to make it non-fatal if it's not there, if possible.

already in dracut-018-1.fc17.noarch
Comment 2 Fedora Update System 2012-04-23 05:04:20 EDT
dracut-018-23.git20120419.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
Comment 3 Eric Sandeen 2012-04-23 10:49:20 EDT
Thanks Harald !

So with this update and e2fsprogs-1.42-4.fc17 in place, re-running dracut (or installing a new kernel) will create a new initramfs with an e2fsck which should not stop on the clock problem.

Comment 4 Fedora Update System 2012-04-25 01:04:19 EDT
dracut-018-23.git20120419.fc17 has been pushed to the Fedora 17 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
