Checking drive for errors has insufficient feedback

Bug #594367 reported by Thangalin on 2010-06-14

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
mountall (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

In 10.04, I see:

Ubuntu 10.04
. . . .

Your disk drives are being checked for errors, this may take some time

Press C to cancel checks currently in progress


1. Sentences should be punctuated.
2. "this may take some time" can be simplified to "please wait..."
3. There is no % complete.

There really should be a % complete, even if it is inaccurate, at least I have a way of knowing (roughly) when to come back to the machine. As it is, if it takes more than 5 or 10 minutes, I'm going to press C because I don't know what it's doing.
