Power loss - disk health check - how to force?


Hello,

On boot, my Mandrake 10.0 Official installation prompts to press 'Y' to force a disk health check/repair session if the system was improperly shut down. I don't have my machine on a UPS, but I do have it set to automatically reboot after a power loss. How can I force Mandrake to perform the disk check/repair on boot automatically? It reboots unattended most of the time.

Thanks!

I just had a look at the boot scripts and it looks like editing /etc/sysconfig/autofsck and setting AUTOFSCK_DEF_CHECK=yes might do the trick.
