Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu By all means, Ubuntu Linux and Canonical Ltd. have made a spectacular arrival on the Linux scene lately. The combination is like a dream come true for many, many Linux aficionados: tightly selected bleeding edge packages to focus the distribution on a single CD, corporate backing, 18 month support, that all sounds like a formidable package.

ext3 file-system checks.
by Anthony on Tue 2nd Nov 2004 17:51 UTC

"A small annoyance: despite having set the root-filesystem up on an ext3-partition, Ubuntu forces a file-system check at boot time every now and then."

If I'm not mistaken, this is a common thing for ext3. There is some way to disable it(which maybe some distros do).

This foreced file-system check is one major reason why I switched to reiserfs. During the Ubuntu install you have the option to use reiserfs instead.
