I don't think that's quite right, fsck -p is only done if background_fsck=NO, otherwise an fsck -pF is done instead. The latter does an fsck -p on filesystems that aren't eligible for background checking - usually root and any none UFS filesystems. In other words you need to set background_fsck=NO to get a preen on all filesystems. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
