Title: Visual checkfs on boot

Package Wishlist: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: Alberto Garcia (trebol-a)

When the system (EXT3) is booting,  launch a checking of filesystem
every 65 days.
A non-advanced user, one day, suddenly, that your computer take a long
time and not show the Desktop... ...wait... and wait ...and press RESET
button again.
On several home computers  that I maintain, the normal time of boot is
( about 1-2 minutes), one day, is multiplied by 10 or 20 WITHOUT visual
Is posible that openSuse show an visual alert over splashScreen in
these situations? Some special loading icon of "extraordinary delay by
checking FS, a moment please ...."?

+ d/boot.rootfsck, though it may not be displayed if bootsplash^W
+ boothiding is enabled. Hm.
