http://unix.stackexchange.com – I have an Ubuntu micro instance running on amazon EC2. Recently after logging in I was alerted: *** /dev/xvda1 will be checked for errors at next reboot *** I've rebooted a couple times using init 6, however when I log on I am still getting the same notice, so apparently fsck is not running at startup. I read this blog post which mentions that if the /etc/fstab <pass> column is set to 0 then a disk check will be skipped during reboot. Here is my fstab file: <file system> <mount point><type><options><dump><pass> LABEL=cloudimg-rootfs / (HowTos)
