haunted by fsck

Is there anyway to prevent fsck from running at EVERY boot? Feels kind of useless to run fsck on filesystems that were cleanly unmounted everytime I boot the system. And I do reboot alot, especially now since I recently installed sarge and I'm trying to make it run nice and clean.

And how doe's one go about disabling modules? That is, removing modules that doesn't exist from the initscripts. I can really live without the scripts shouting "FATAL blablabla" because they can't find modules that I don't need or want.

Would be nice to know =)

Does fsck check the filesystems every boot? Or does fsck just check if they were unmounted properly??? What filesystem are you using? Maybe you should checkout the manpage of tune2fs if you are using ext2 or ext3.

The modules that are loaded are in /etc/modules.

Hope this helps a bit

i think on journalizing filesystems the log is checked at boot, and fsck is run only if the log shows that something funky happened... that's why you have the option to force an fsck upon reboot by using "shutdown -rF now"...
