Ubuntu.. Startup being slow with fsck on vfat June 5, 2007Posted by sandakith in linux, Open Source.
My Ubuntu bootup is really really slow, some reasons are clearly visible.. fsck might be one of the causes.
dosfsck which is called via fsck everytime you boot takes quite a bit of time and slows down the boot process dramatically.
Searching the web I found that you can disable the fsck check by changing the entry “1” (checks file system everytime) to “0”
So, your fstab entry for vfat partitions would look something like this,
UUID=301C-1A1D /media/hda1 vfat defaults,utf8,umask=007,gid=46 0 0
