The periodic ext3 fs checks at boot are driving me nuts. I know they can be disabled.

Couldn't they be performed at shutdown instead of boot?

Whenever someone starts the computer it means 100% they need it right then.

Having ext3 perform fs checking on a 300 GB full drive is nothing that any user will tolerate easily.

You could theoretically automate those checks in the background.

But you would need the fs in LVM and free space in your VG.

1. Make a snapshot of your fs
2. check the snapshot fs (you may have to replay the logs first (mount-umount))
3. check return code for possible errors
4. delete snapshot
5. if no error returned, reset the 'last-checked' flags of the original fs (with tune2fs).
