Hello,

I turn off (and so reboot) my PC nearly daily. Usually this should mean, that partitions are filesystem checked automatically with fsck if this is required. On my hard disk there are two partitions (sdb5 and sdb6) that are my main /home and /data partitions, that seem not to be checked automatically.

This message is found in kern.log:
      Code:
pr 10 08:35:50 flupp kernel: [    8.273598] EXT4-fs (sdb5): warning: maximal mount count reached, running e2fsck is recommended
Apr 10 08:35:50 flupp kernel: [    8.285295] EXT4-fs (sdb5): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode. Opts: (null)
Apr 10 08:35:50 flupp kernel: [    8.355387] EXT4-fs (sdb6): warning: maximal mount count reached, running e2fsck is recommended
Apr 10 08:35:50 flupp kernel: [    8.372694] EXT4-fs (sdb6): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode. Opts: (null)


"tune2fs -l /dev/sdb5" tells me:
      Code:
Mount count:              798
Maximum mount count:      25


What might be the problem? What could I check? Why are the partitions not checked automatically?

Thanks,
arwa

Ah ok, from the man page: "The sixth field (fs_passno)."
Indeed the partitions have a "0" there. I am sure this is my mistake not aptosids. I will fix this.

Thanks,
arwa
