**** wants to run every boot

Wed Jan 24, 2018 10:59 am

edit: this post is about the Linux file system check, apparently it's a bad word so therefore the asterisks :lol:

Ubuntu 16.04 -> when I log in I keep getting /dev/md0 will be checked for errors at next boot. Okay. Check the status of the filesystem:

Last checked:             Thu Jul 20 16:53:52 2017
Check interval:           15552000 (6 months)
Next check after:         Tue Jan 16 16:53:52 2018

Okay, so why isn't it checking. I tried / ****, message still isn't gone? Dug into it deeper and apparently systemd has changed the way **** at boot works (/dev/md0 being my root partition).

So I check the log and here is where the plot thickens:
[email protected]:/run/initramfs$ cat /run/initramfs/****.log
Log of **** -C -a -T -t ext3 /dev/md0
Wed Jan 24 14:24:24 2018

/dev/md0: clean, 775289/30277632 files, 60797295/121093936 blocks

Wed Jan 24 14:24:24 2018

Uh, so it is checking /dev/md0 more recently than July 20, 2017, but some reason the file system is not getting updated that it has been checked. Ideas?

I seem to remember a friend of mine running into issues with f s c k like this, but don't remember his solution. Maybe some kind of loony permissions issue?

What happens if you run it by hand? Are you shutting down uncleanly consistently?
