my computer was booting and it started one of those once every 30
boot HD checks. It says you can press escape so my wife did.
Will this do damage? How can I start it again? Do I need to do
that? Where are the records of what is was trying to check? Any
other things I should know about this? Thanks!
There is no problem. Ubuntu did not design a system that does
important checks and allows you to abandon them in the middle leaving
you with a mess... so the story goes anyway! ;)
It is a standard procedure to keep your system healthy and working.
AFAIK it is triggered by one of the values for a drive entry in the
/etc/fstab file. Have a look. If you don't do it this time, it will be
picked up again, but I am not sure if it is in another 30 mounts or
next attempted mount. But I do know it is nothing to be concerned
about. However, if you feel like playing with this you can tell your
wife she has destroyed your system... ;)
Sometimes I think that these checks should be put into the start up
time counts. Yes, Linux can boot in under 20 minutes. :-)
