[opensuse] Using e2fsck in, eg, Leap 15.0
Many moons ago, when nobody ever walked into a lamp post while staring into a smartphone, one could check the status of the ext4 file system where oS was installed (as a for instance, /dev/hda3).

To do this, one first issued (as root) the command:

init 1

followed by

mount -o remount, ro /dev/hdXY

and then issuing:

e2fsck /dev/hdXY

(preferably) without any parameters.

Now, I see that 'e2fsck /dev/hdXY' (man e2fsck) this command is still available and effective but the 'mount -o...' command does not 'work' anymore.

What is the new way, please if anyone knows, to check the status of the ext4 file system?


There comes a time in the affairs of a man when he has to take
the bull by the tail and face the situation.
