Bug Description

When the system was shut down abruptly fsck will be forced during next boot. Up to now it was possible to get a feedback when pressing <ESC> or <UpArrow> - although no progress was shown a message was displayed like "/dev/sda1 not cleanly unmounted, check forced.". By now no such message is displayed even when looking for console output.

I think a feedback should be given even in splash screen. Like the feedback when doing fsck after x mounts..

In 13.10, the output from mountall has been redirected to /var/log/upstart/mountall.log, which will only be written once the root filesystem has been mounted read-write. So you're right that you won't get feedback on the console about what's going on with the fsck.

But why are you looking for these details, specifically? The splash screen should show you that the filesystem is being checked, and show you a progress counter (% done). Is this part not working?

Progress is only shown when the filesystem is checked in routine (<-bad english, sorry). When it is checked resulting from unclean unmount/abrupt shutdown no feedback is given.

Status changed to 'Confirmed' because the bug affects multiple users.

Changed in plymouth (Ubuntu):
status: New → Confirmed

Still no feedback on the splash screen in Trusty.
