LMDE with btrfs root partition fails at first boot

Postby ArnoVR on Mon May 07, 2012 7:44 am

Hi just thought I'd share this in case it can help someone save a little time.

There is a symbolic link missing to btrfsck so cd into /sbin and "ln -s btrfsck fsck.btrfs" and boot is then able to find what it's looking for.

Don't have the error didn't think to write it down at the time.

On my install, I've set my fstab entry for my btrfs mount points pass num to 0 so there is no attempt to run fsck.brtrfs on boot. btrfsck is still being developed, and I'm not sure it is wise to have a scan done automatically on boot... especially since its being developed in a tree on github titled "dangerdonteveruse" :shock:
