Bug Description

People need to learn what means "Check of drives" (sorry for my English, I speak Italian) if they are not English. In the italian version of ubuntu, there is not a translation of this phrase and not an explanation of this function. A simply user that comes from windows or mac and see "Check of drives" for the first time (and maybe the other), he panic because this process occurs only sometimes when the computer is starting and the user does not understand what is happening.
I suggest to translate "Check of drives" in other language and to add a very simply and short documentation of what is happening when there is a "Check of drives".

Sorry for my English!

Thank you for bringing this bug to our attention. Unfortunately a paper cut should be a small usability issue that affects many people and is quick and easy to fix. I'm afraid this bug can't be addressed as part of this project.

This definitely needs translations, and affects many non-English users but does not affect the majority of average users, Hence not a papercut.

A paper cut is a minor usability annoyance that an average user would encounter on his/her first day of using a new installation of Ubuntu 9.10.

For further info about papercuts criteria , pls read > https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PaperCut

Don't worry though, This bug has been marked as "invalid" ONLY in the papercuts project. The bug is still valid in other projects.

Can you specify where you are seeing this message? I suspect this is not something which is actually a text message issued by e2fsck or e2fsprogs in general, but by the init scripts which is responsible for the boot screen. "Check of drives" isn't something which is printed by e2fsck or e2fsprogs as far as I know.

Yes, when you start computer and after the boot, before the login...

These messages come from mountall - I think they are marked for translation but I will ensure they are

I took a look into the source, and marked for translation everything that looked like something a user can see :).

This bug was fixed in the package mountall - 2.10

---------------
mountall (2.10) lucid; urgency=low

  * Rework the Plymouth connection logic; one needs to attach the client to
    the event loop *after* connection otherwise you don't get disconnection
    notification, and one needs to actually actively disconnect in the
    disconnection handler.
  * For safety and sanity reasons it becomes much simpler to create the
    ply_boot_client when we connect, and free it on disconnection. Thus the
    presence or not of this struct tells us whether we're connected or not.
    LP: #524708.
  * Flush the plymouth connection before closing it and exiting, otherwise
    updates may be pending and the screen have messages that confuse people
    while X is starting (like fsck at 90%). LP: #487744.

  * Replace the modal plymouth prompt for error conditions with code that
    continues working in the background while prompting. This most benefits
    the old "Waiting for" message, which can now allow you to continue to
    wait and it can solve itself. LP: #527666, #545435.
  * Integrate fsck progress updates into the same mechanism.
  * Allow fsck messages to be translated. LP: #390740.
  * Change fsck message to be a little less alarming. LP: #545267.
  * Add hard dependency on Plymouth; without it running, mountall will
    ignore any filesystem which doesn't show up within a few seconds or that
    fails to fsck or mount. If you don't want graphical splash, you simply
    need not install themes.

  * Improve set of messages seen with --verbose, and ensure all visible
    messages are marked for translation. LP: #446592.
  * Reduce priority of failed to mount error for remote filesystems since
    we try again, and this just spams the console. LP: #504224.

  * Keep hold of the dev_t when parsing /proc/self/mountinfo, then after
    mounting /dev (or seeing that it's mounted) create a quick udev rules
    file that adds the /dev/root symlink to this device. LP: #527216.
  * Do not try and update /etc/mtab when it's a symbolic link. LP: #529993.
  * Remove odd -a option from mount calls, probably a C&P error from the
    fsck code long ago. LP: #537135.
  * Wait for Upstart to acknowledge receipt of events, even if we don't
    hang around for them to be handled.
  * Always run through try_mounts() at least once. LP: #537136.
  * Don't keep mountall running if the only remaining unmounted filesystems
  *
