Hi,
I have this problem with systemd. All partitions of fstab are checked every single boot, furthermore the screen gets black and I have to wait without knowing what is going on; I can only see the hdd led on. This is not a big problem for system partitions but it is for bigger partitions. Here's an example
Code:
 cat /etc/fstab|grep home
LABEL=SSDHome           /home              ext4            noatime,discard,user_xattr      0 2


Here is tune2fs -l before rebooting
Code:
tune2fs 1.42.10 (18-May-2014)

Hi,

are you sure the partitions are fsck every boot? Do you see a message telling it?

The black screen can come from missing firmwares who are not in the kernel image and the initramfs. The kernel video driver have to wait until the root partition is accessible to load the requiered firmwares to be able to manage the video card for a screen display.

Hi, thanks
I'm not 100% sure but changing fstab to stop fsck from
Code:
LABEL=Storage   /media/Storage      ext4      defaults,user_xattr      0 3

to (no fsck)
Code:
LABEL=Storage   /media/Storage      ext4      defaults,user_xattr      0 0


makes everything faster (aka from 7 minutes to 25 seconds for booting).

I can see the screen during booting, it gets black after a while, just before lightdm starts. When the system does the fsck it's completely black and it comes back when the hdd led stops.During shut down, all black.

Everything regarding the fsck seems to be automagically fixed, I upgraded the kernel to the last stable release, I was running 3.10.

Also I figured out that i had a problem with ntp and I had this message in the logs:Superblock last write time is in the future.

One of these two fixed the problem (I think the latter).Anyway thanks Logicien.
