Re: FSCK'ing at the wrong time!

You could increase the mount count between fsck's and lose your earliest detection if something goes wrong.
I would fsck the day before your presentation and be done with it.

Ok let's clarify a few things here.

The FSCK utility in the Debian distribution *is* where the file system is requiring to be checked on boot, the file system isn't the problem here.

As I explained, I could increase the mount-count to a higher value, however I don't want to; I want to see linux meet the needs of the user, not the other way around, hence there should be an option to cancel an in progress fsck.
