Mint9 Boot Stalls on fsck
Description of Problem
Whenever the system requires an fsck at boot the boot process stalls. Recovery requires one to press "c" to cancel fsck and continue the booting process.
Steps to Reproduce
Wait until the next automatic fsck
Or: sudo touch /forcefsck
It was reported elsewhere that removing 'quiet splash' from the boot options was a workaround but that does not work and all attachments and descriptions in this bug report reflect both those options removed.
* I let this run on one occasion for 28 minutes without resulting in a boot.
* I have Mint9 installed on two different boxes and it happens to both.
* If I immediately reboot after a forcefsck all partitions are declared clean
* If I force an fsck the stall occurs again
My attachments should make this more clear.
Ubuntu Bug Report:
This bug report is apparently closed (?) because it was fixed by version 2.15 of package: mountall.
I have version 2.15 installed. It's implied that package: Plymouth is also involved in this problem so I have included the versions of both packages that I am currently running.
Relevant version levels:
apt version mountall: 2.15
apt version plymouth: 0.8.2-2-1mint3
