Re: [opensuse] interrupt or cancel file system check at boot, occasionally only
Istvan Gabor said the following on 12/20/2011 01:59 PM:
At every Nth mount fsck checks a given partition, which takes
a long time.

fsck is &not* linear with the size of a file system but a function of
the power (square) or the size.

So a 4G FS will take longer to process than two 2G FS.
Also the 2 file systems will be able to the fsck'd in parallel :-)
You might also consider a setup where the 2 FS are _not_ fsck'd
together: both have the same N but are spaced apart by M.

(Whatever is said in Latin sounds profound.)
