Re: "your disk drives are being checked for errors"

I figured something mightve been f'ed up with my partitions, and did a reinstall with only 2 partitions. One little swap and one big ext2. First 5 or so reboots worked like a charm but now it's back :( Anyone know if it may have anything to do with http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=175&...

Re: getpwuid failed due to unknown usr id

I also get this, every startup. On mint 9 fluxbox, but I suppose it's the same problem.

Re: "your disk drives are being checked for errors"

The problem is back now, even when shutting down from the console :( It clearly says that /dev/sda3/ wasnt properly unmounted and that a check is forced.

Im thinking of just reinstalling. Obviously something is f'd up.

Anyone got any more ideas? :(

Re: "your disk drives are being checked for errors"

I tried doing

Code: Select all

sudo shutdown -h 0
in a normal terminal, because of lack of boot cd where I'm at now.

Nothing failed! And it started up nicely after.

How do we interpret this?

Very laggy embedded videos

Tried both in opera and firefox. When I try to view flash videos embedded in something else (youtube.com works brilliantly) like this test drive film on a car blog: http://feber.se/bil/art/203646/volkswagen_passat_4motion/ I get massive lag and it just becomes impossible to watch or do any other web...

Re: "your disk drives are being checked for errors"

After step 2, it stops telling %age and what drive it's checking. So I let it go blindly for over 30 mins in that state, then pressed c. When I did that, it showed scanning disk 3 and ran very quickly 0-100%. It still hasnt scanned now for 2 reboots, so maybe the problem is gone now. Any ideas on wh...

Re: Worth downloading the current fluxbox ed?

Oh! Sometimes I just suck. I had completely missed that it was based on ubuntu 10.04... I thought it was a much older version. Well, that's it. I'll try it :)
