Ubuntu :: How To Disable Boot Time Disk Checks

Aug 1, 2011

These days I see the disk check that is popping up when my Ubuntu is booting up quite frequently. It says 'press C to cancel' but C (or Shift C or CTRL C or CTRL ALT C) does not have any effect. Pressing CTRL+ALT+DELETE reboots but again ends up in the vicious loop of disk check. How to bypass it? When I need to critically enter the desktop for an urgent pressing info waiting for 20 to 25 minutes disk check is kind of difficult.

Ubuntu :: Disable Frequent Disk Checks In Lucid?

May 11, 2010

Since upgrading (fresh install) to Lucid, I've been having to go through disk checks about once or twice a week on boot. I'm not sure why Lucid thinks it needs to check my disk so often. I looked into it a bit, and found a command that was supposed to stop disk checks happening so often.

Code: sudo tune2fs -i 2w `mount | awk '$3 == "/" {print $1}'` is supposed to set it to 2 weeks. I used "/home" too as I have home on a separate partition and didn't want that to be checked too. All was fine until I booted up to find another disk check today. It can sometimes take over half an hour to finish and C to cancel doesn't always work either.

I always shutdown cleanly, unless Ubuntu completely locks up, which happens maybe once every six months (although it did happen yesterday, but I have rebooted it a few times since then with no checks happening until just now). Is there a way to just disable checks completely? I wouldn't mind running them manually every now and then, I just don't want to do it as often as Lucid does.

CentOS 5 :: How To Speed Up Boot Time / Disable Or Change Eth0 At Boot / Searching?

Jan 11, 2010

This on a Vostro 1220 Laptop w/ Intel 5300 wireless:

A.I have long boot up time.I think it's because of the eth0 network search which I don't use.I have an intel wireless 5300 card running.How can I speed up the boot time, i.e. disable or change the eth0 at boot, the searching?

B:When I restart or shutdown, the screen flashes repeatedly and gets some garbled colors along the top before finally rebooting looks like windows ME or something).This vostro has an intel x4500HD vid chipset in it.

C.How do I get into gnome configuration editor to turn on Metacity compositing? Alt-F2 and run gconf-editor doesn't do it. I don't do compiz, but need compositing.

D.I need to install Chromium Browser as it sync my bookmarks.I have RPMforge enabled btw also...how can I do that? I.e. rpm repo for chromium?

This will help me get off to a running start so I can get up to speed on CentOS..

Fedora :: Completley Disable LVM At Boot Time

Apr 25, 2011

I am working on shortening my boot time on my laptop, so I am using bootchart to help me pinpoint the slow areas. So far, I got it down to about 40 seconds (from 2:33! -- dosfsck was running every boot). I don't use LVM (I am dual booting with Windows and it's hard enough with static partitions), and I have tried to disable LVM in every way I can imagine except uninstalling it (system-config-kickstart depends on it), but I still see it being initialized at boot time. How do I prevent the system from even considering LVM during boot??

My bootchart is here, and in case it is useful to anyone, my bootchart.tgz and boot.log..I'm running Fedora 14, and it's up to date.

Ubuntu :: No Progress Indication When System Checks Disk(s) On Startup

Jan 21, 2011

Ubuntu 10.10 does not appear to have an indication of progress when the system checks HDs on start up. In previous versions - at least back to 8 - I think there was either a
progress bar or % reading to give an indication of progress of the scan / check .Is it possible to switch this back on in 10.10?Also how do you control the frequency of disk checks on start up?

Ubuntu :: How To Stop Disk Check Every Time On Boot Up

Dec 19, 2010

Every time I boot up I have to go through a disk check and then restart, how do I stop it from happening? When the disk checks happening I press escape and it usually says its deleted inode something because it has zero Dtime or some thing similar and also a paragraph of repeated lines saying something like all system files need alsa base.cnfg it will be ignored in a future release then the disk check completes and it restarts and is fine then, also sometimes it says dev/sda5 (my ubuntu partition) was not cleanly unmounted check forces. Is their a way to stop this happening as it ends up taking ages just to login.

Ubuntu :: Automatically Mount The Disk And Enter The Password Each Time Boot Up

Mar 7, 2010

i'm trying to get everything working ok. i have installed ubuntu using wubi and i've found that i can access my files on my windows partition from ubuntu. to do this i have to mount the disk and enter the password each time i boot up, and i would like this to be done automatically. i was wondering if this was possible? i put in a link directly to the music folder on windows into my 'places' but it only appears once i have put the password in. its not a huge thing, but its one of those things which would make starting up my ubuntu a lot more conveniant.

Ubuntu :: Slow Boot Time After Creating Virtual Disk For Virtualbox Guest

Jun 4, 2010

My laptop boot up time increased considerably (10 seconds) after allocating a virtual drive for virtualbox guest. The guest installation did not work so i removed it along with the virtual disk. Now everytime when i boot to ubuntu, after inputting my password in the login screen, it takes much longer to load the system. And during the loading time the disk activity indicator light blinks indicating the harddisk is actually busy loading the system.

I decided to search around for a possible answer and force reprofiling ureadahead does the trick Now boot time is back to what it used to be

Ubuntu :: 10.4 Checks Disks After Every Boot?

May 15, 2010

Ever since my upgrade from 9.10 to 10.4, every time I reboot the system it does a full disk check. /var/log/boot.log tells me that fsck thinks that the file systems contain errors or that it wasn't cleanly unmounted. And yet, it doesn't seem to actually find errors, and a clean reboot starts another check (again with it thinking something is dirty). I dual-boot with Windows, and reboot from there with the same problem.Again, all of this is new with 10.4 and was not happening with 9.10.Is there a way to find out when/how/why the disks are not being unmounted cleanly?

Server :: NPT Time Sync - Disable DST Switching?

May 2, 2011

I live in Egypt and we used to have Daylight Saving Time in this time of the year. But due to some political conditions, this decision was revoked and we are not using DST this year. The problem is that my Redhat 5.6 machines, configured to the timezone Africa/Cairo has already set the DST (UTC+3). The current time in Egypt is UTC+2. Of course I can manually set the time but the servers are set to sync automatically with an NTP time server so that time gets synced automatically whenever I try to change it. I want a way or another to disable DST switching.

Ubuntu :: How To Disable Thumbnails (Cached On Disk)

Jul 23, 2011

Apparently, Ubuntu (and Xubuntu) keep copies of all thumbnails ever loaded, cached in ~/.thumbnails. To me, this is creepy and can be bad from a security standpoint. Is there any way to have all thumbnails loaded on-the-fly, but not to have them ever cached on disk? I tried symlinking ~/.thumbnails to /dev/null, but this disabled thumbnails entirely.

Fedora :: Disable Access Time Specific FOLDERS?

Apr 27, 2011

Can anyone shed some light in this? Using Fedora 14-64, new install, 185 Opteron x 2 gig ram, sata hard drives formatted Ext4.However, in my home directory I have a folder for all my digital photos of which I have more than 20,000, and in another folder I have images and clipart of which I have almost 8,000. That is a lot of read only access to a significant number of files in my home directory.

How can I tell Fedora to not update the LAST ACCESS TIME of those files (specifically images) that will never actually be changed other than just being read. I want to leave that feature enabled for the rest of my home directory. I am trying t; improve my disk performance in Nautilus because whenever I access the folders with my images the system literally slows to a crawl and sometimes even the mouse stops working for several minutes until Nautilus has finished having its heart attack.
