Once in a while (every 30-th boot) my linux system decides to check filesystem for errors. I am ok with this - what needs to be done needs to be done.
But sometimes I need my laptop to boot fast. I need some urgent job to do and I do not have time to wait for
fsck to complete (it may take about 10 minutes). How can I stop the check in this case?
The only solution (well, workaround) I come up to now is to turn off auto fsck and run it manually occasionally. I do not like this approach, because I have to remember when it was the last time I run it.
What I want is to be able to press Ctrl+C to abort filesystem check. Let filesystem check run during the next boot!
But actually if I press Ctrl+C
fsck just restarts.
