NAME

  bcheckrc - Command script for	checking and mounting local file systems

SYNOPSIS

  /sbin/bcheckrc

DESCRIPTION

  The bcheckrc script controls the checking and	mounting of local file sys-
  tems during system startup.

  An entry in the inittab file causes the system to execute the	bcheckrc run
  commands, for	example:

       fs:23:wait:/sbin/bcheckrc <&lt; /dev/console	>&gt; /dev/console 2>&gt;&&amp;1

  The bcheckrc script performs the following operations:

    +  Checks the local	file systems listed in /etc/fstab for consistency

    +  Runs fsck with the -p option to preen all disks of minor	inconsisten-
       cies resulting from the last system shutdown and	to check for serious
       inconsistencies caused by hardware or software failure.

    +  Changes the root	file system from read-only to read-write

    +  Mounts local file systems listed	in /etc/fstab

FILES

  /sbin/bcheckrc
      Specifies	the command path.
