Re: /.autofsck continually updated every reboot

If the file is detected at startup,_then_ the system will perform an

running normally. If you really want to test this, shut down your
system normally and then boot it from a livecd - I suspect if you
examine the root filesystem, you will find that the .autofsck file has
been deleted.

Another way to check this is to run these commands in a terminal:

cd /
ls -la .autofsck

and check the file's timestamp. The creation time should be at roughly
your most recent boot.
