/home dir. wont mount after system crash. I have to run fsck to mount it again. why?
I am using openSUSE 11.3 (upgraded from 11.2) and have upgraded KDE to KDE 4.5 "--from" SUSE's KDE Core & KDE Extras repo's. Recently I have run into an issue... I don't know if it has any thing to do with KDE but sometimes (randomly) while I am just doing average things on my computer, the system will freeze. Upon reboot, it says that my home directory does not exist and wont log into my account (i have separate "/", "/boot", and "/home" partitions). So I boot from a SUSE-LiveCD and try to mount my home partition. The system wont let me mount /dev/sda3 (my home partition) unless I run "fsck /dev/sda3" first. After running fsck it says that my file-system is clean. then when I reboot my system it will mount fine and work great until it all happens again. It could be hours or day... maybe someone can tell me why this is happening and how I can fix it. If not maybe someone can tell me where on my system I can edit a script to tell my system to just run fsck on /dev/sda3 before the system mounts it... as at least if my system freezes it will reboot without me having to manually go in and run fsck. PLEASE HELP! THANKS.
