Forced check of boot device

#1 Postby eltuno » Sat Apr 14, 2018 9:06 am

Hi,

here's my new weekly bug for u all to enjoy !

After I pass the MX17 standard boot screen and just after I enter the password of my encrypted live persitent partition, I get that error message during the boot process :

Code: Select all

bios device sdb1 has not been checked in 30 mounts. Check forced.

Vérification du système de fichiers bios device.
fsck /dev/sdb1

Segmentation fault
Error: Segmentation fault
Erreur non fatale

Filesystem sdb1 could not be fixed.

(continuer/éteindre/redémarrer)


Today I've got a second error in row, just the same error where "boot device", "liveb", "/dev/mapper/liveb", are replaced by "bios device", "sdb1", "/dev/sdb1".

And then I ask to continue, and everything runs fine.

By now I have only tried to make a manual fsck that way :


Code: Select all

$ sudo fsck /dev/sdb1
fsck from util-linux 2.29.2
e2fsck 1.43.4 (31-Jan-2017)
Live-usb : propre, 400/1672 fichiers, 57768/152576 blocs

demo@mx1:~
$ sudo fsck /dev/mapper/liveb
fsck from util-linux 2.29.2
e2fsck 1.43.4 (31-Jan-2017)
/dev/mapper/liveb est monté.
e2fsck: Ne peut continuer, arrêt immédiat.

One question. When you downloaded the ISO file originally, did you check its MD5 matched the one on the download site? If not you may have a faulty copy of MX which is throwing up all your problems.
The MD5 for MX-17_x64.iso is 0cd9c5003e34768d795534253bd5326e

Yes I checked the md5 sum after I downloaded MX17 and my usb stick is brand new.

Now I have a third error in row concerning rootfs
( fsck /live/boot-dev/antiX/rootfs )

When I enter c for continue, it says "Could not enable root! persistence.
So I'm taken back to my last remaster.

I'd like to know if there's any way to deactivate that forced check at startup. Even though my system might be corrupted

To the MX developers

nothing should be forced under GNU-linux !

because of that forced check "feature" I can't access to my live persitence anymore.

Add nocheckfs at boot menu
