XFCE 9 RC is not spared from this bug

In summary, the fsck freezes/hangs. This bug is common to all MINT9 (xfce, lxde, gnome). I wonder why no one seemed to notice it.
Yep, me too. I've seen a few other posts about this issue. As a noob I need to ask, with it hanging like that can it do its job? Seems kind of serious.
*buntu has never done this, which makes it doubly weird.
If you don't install level 3 updates you never see it.
Also the final is about to released real soon.

I just edit fstab to stop the disk check. The Disk Utility lets me know the condition of the hard drive anyway if I have reason to believe there might be a problem.

IMO FWIW merlwiz 79, My donation for your new computer was worth every penny. Well Done on the AMD64 version of Xfce. Just ran the Live CD and it worked out of the box. Thanks!
Dumped Sabayon and came back to Linux Mint, thanks for the great work

I will be trying this on my netbook. Arch has been giving me grief with the wireless (Ralink RT2860). If I knew what was added with the Ubuntu kernel to make it work right I'd patch my Arch kernel but I just don't know...

Thanks Merlwiz for all your hard work! I updated from the RC on one computer and did a fresh install on another and I am a happy camper now. :D

I downloaded the new Mint-9 Xfce edition and loaded it into Unetbootin ... installed on a newly formatted USB flash-drive. Easy, no problems.

Then, I opened the USB drive as a Live OS in my new Acer Aspire One Netbook.
Like it so much ... installed it, right away.

As usual, everything in Mint-9 Xfce ... works "out of the box" as they say.

My AAO Netbook has Mint and I updated the sources.list already ... it also, has Webcam, Wireless and Wifi working.

A big 'Thank You' to the entire Mint Team that worked on the Xfce edition of Isadora ... you've out done yourselves ... again.

I admit I'm n00bish so how do I do that?

the command would be

Code: Select all

sudo mouspad /etc/fstab
right? but what entries do I actually change?

I have been affected by this as well. The worst thing is that it fails to remove /forcefsck, so you get into an endless loop of reboots.

That said, perhaps its worse that you cannot see exactly what is happening, as even after pressing Esc the messages I saw were less than helpful.

Actually, the worst thing is that there is no obvious way to boot into single user mode, so even an experienced user is not going to see how to remove forcefsck and run fsck manually (at which point you will presumably see that there is a problem with fsck).

Also, the bug is marked with importance "undecided". For non-geek users this is going to be difficult to fix. Please devs, this is important.
