After boot: How to get progress of fsck (Debian)
To day i got the message that fsck has to check sda6 (big 1 TB harddisk, ext3).
Unfortunately fsck does not give me a progress in % or minutes or a **** bar, i thought the process hung.
What can i do to get the progress for fsck back?
Where can i set a parameter to get it?
Probably a bit late, but I was curious if it's similar to dd and it is: https://serverfault.com/questions/118791/how-do-you-get-e2fsck-to-show-progress-information#118792
killall -USR1 e2fsck
@frenzie Sorry, hwo can this solve my problem?
The fsck comes up at boot process, not in user console.
You should be able to add
-Cto the invocation somewhere (I'm surprised the distro hasn't already), but you might be able to send this from another tty. (Ctrl+Alt+F2-6).
Of course you'd have to remember in the spur of the moment, but after having started dd a few times while forgetting to pass the "give me info" flag I've started to remember
killall -USR1 ddso for me it might work knowing that
e2fsckis the same.
