Description Wojciech Palacz 2005-04-14 01:12:25 UTC
Description of problem:
rc.sysinit does not support fully automatic filesystem checking (fsck -y)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. echo "-y" > /fsckoptions
2. reboot
Actual results:
after reboot root filesystem check fails due to conflicting switches
given to fsck: fsck -a -y

Expected results:
system should boot up normally, doing filesystem checks with fsck -y
instead of fsck -a

Additional info:
easy workaround is to edit /etc/rc.d/rc.sysedit manually, and replace
all occurences of 'fsck -T -a ...' with 'fsck -T -y ...'

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2005-09-21 19:50:37 UTC
Moving this bug to the Fedora Core development stream, so it can be considered
for  upstream development for later RHEL releases. It is unlikely that this
change will be made for RHEL 4.
