RE: [opensuse] fsck running amok
Well, I've done some more digging on this problem and, though I have found
out some things, I am still no closer to solving the problem than before.

1) The huge amount of lines in /var/log/messages seems to be unrelated to
why I'm getting an fsck every time I boot. There are hundreds of lines in
there that look like this one --

Linux kernel: SFW2-IN-ACC-RELATED IN eth0
OUT=MAC=00:08:74:24:85:82:00:04:5A:0f:18:07:08:00 SRC=
DST= LEN=529 TOS=0x00 PREC=0x00 TTL=64 ID=238936 WINDOW=1716
RES=0x00 ACK FIN URGP=0 OPT (long hex number here)

The DST address is my machine's internal address. I checked several of the
SRC addresses and they seemed to all be ZEN/YOU mirrors. So, this would
appear to be some ZEN glitch (if so, what's new). I wouldn't think this
would have anything to do with my getting the fscks every time I boot.

2) When I finally scrolled back across thousands of lines of the above and
got to the beginning of the startup process, there were no messages that
indicated any type of problem, disk related or otherwise.

3) I tried "tune2fs -c 99 /dev/hda2" and it came back and said "Setting
maximal mount count to 99". However, I still get an fsck every time I boot

So, at this point I'm stumped. There doesn't seem to be any error message
coming out and yet it just automatically does an fsck every time I boot.
I'm going to look at some of the other files in /var/log to see if I can
find one with some sort of message in it that would point me to why this is
happening. Don't know what else to do at this point.
