grub2: stop FS check at boot?


Hi All,

I'm using debian testing with grub2. Is there a way to stop the FS check at boot (something like ctrl-c) after the check has started and continue with the boot process as usual?.

Cheers.

Thanks but it relates to grub (not grub2) and the other two options do not apply during system boot.

I think he may be looking for a permanent fix. I tried but felt I could not spend the time. Now I have learned to live with the extra boot time and it does not bother me. I guess if I come across an easy solution I would change.

I waited a good six months before adapting to ext4 and grub2. Thought it was time to get on the cutting edge.

It makes me feel young again.

Thanks all for the replies.

To clarify, I'm looking for an option to skip the HDD check (scheduled every 30days or so) in case it starts during the boot process. This comes handy if when in a hurry and don't want to wait several minutes for the check to complete.
