I did touch /forcefsck && reboot on remote machine, using Ubuntu 9.10.

How I can find out if there were any errors corrected? How I can find out what the result of the fsck was?

Thanks

    Have a look in /var/log/fsck/

  • Unfortunately nothing there - time stamps don't match and both files contain this: (Nothing has been logged yet.)

I think it might be in /var/log/boot.log. At least there appears to be something in mine relating to a successful fsck:

fsck from util-linux-ng 2.17.2
/dev/sda1: clean, 300236/4358144 files, 6740064/17401600 blocks

This is on Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS.

  • Nope, same as above. In fact, I checked the whole /var/log and can't see anything to make sense. Now, few days are passed, but still... Thanks!

    to confirm: on CentOS 6.5 restarted with shutdown -rF now you can find lines in /var/log/boot.log (same as on Ubuntu), such as: Checking filesystems sys: clean, 119622/5931008 files, 4238482/23716355 blocks... Commented Jul 16, 2014 at 14:14

I was lucky with:

grep fsck /var/log/*|less

I had the same problem.

My distro is Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS x86_64

I found the log you and I need in /var/log/kern.log.

After a black-out during a storm I rebooted my pc with /forcefsck. My root partition is /dev/sda5. My /var/log/kern.log below:

Aug 15 10:34:40 utopia kernel: [   12.383204] EXT3-fs (sda5): orphan cleanup on readonly fs
Aug 15 10:34:40 utopia kernel: [   12.383209] ext3_orphan_cleanup: deleting unreferenced inode 3720218
Aug 15 10:34:40 utopia kernel: [   12.383232] ext3_orphan_cleanup: deleting unreferenced inode 3720217

... and after some rows like these ...

Aug 15 10:34:40 utopia kernel: [   12.441253] EXT3-fs (sda5): 54 orphan inodes deleted
Aug 15 10:34:40 utopia kernel: [   12.441314] EXT3-fs (sda5): recovery complete
Aug 15 10:34:40 utopia kernel: [   12.596464] EXT3-fs (sda5): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode
