Message during boot: Not Automatically Fixing This


I'm running Debian 2.6.8-2-386 on a Dell Inspiron laptop. One message that flies by during boot up is a page full of numbers in this format: 418:00/20 followed by the message: Not Automatically Fixing This.

I looked in dmesg to try to read more about this error but it is not reported there. Where can I read a log of the boot up info? Any ideas what this is responding to?

Thanks,

Joschi

Hi,

A little search came up with this (message should be in one of the log files, be it dmesg or /var/log/messages):

If the above is the case, take a look here:

It's not exactly your distro, but maybe it will help.

I was about having the same problem, apparently
caused by different partition managers (Powerquest PM 8 versus
Paragon PM 7)starting numbering cylinders/sectors
in a different way (0/1).
