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?

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.
/var/logand can't see anything to make sense. Now, few days are passed, but still... Thanks!
shutdown -rF nowyou can find lines in
/var/log/boot.log(same as on Ubuntu), such as: Checking filesystems sys: clean, 119622/5931008 files, 4238482/23716355 blocks... 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 ...
