boot process stops if fsck can't check file systems automatically

Bug #305324 reported by Paolo Benvenuto on 2008-12-04
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
sysvinit (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: upstart

During normal boot, you can have the boot process stopped because of fsck finding an inconsitency during periodic file system checks.

I think it's a serious bug, because the normal user gets an english message - many, many people in the world don't understand english - the announces something ununderstandable for the non technical user.

I myself, althoug I am a quite technical person and I know quite english, have difficulties to interpret the message appearing.

The normal "joe" ubuntu user gets a situation which he absolutely cannot understand nor manage, and the only solution is to look for help from some ubunty guy.

I think the boot process, or fsck, should be put in condition of managing these situation.

If this doesn't happen, ubuntu seeks absolutely not newby- nor user-friendly
