    Question Linux question

    I run Ubuntu 2.6 and every now and then i get this thing that comes up when the computer boots that says:

    "/ has not been mounted in 30 days, check forced "

    then it starts loading something...

    What does this mean?

    its nothing to worry about, just doing a routine check of the disk for errors. The frequency can be edited in the fstab:
    sudo gedit /etc/fstab
    (if you think you know what you're doing, make a backup etc. )

    Yeah usually its either a time or number of mounts, whichever comes first that will cause the system to check the disk. It isn't any big deal.
