bcheckrc - Command script for checking and mounting local file systems
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 << /dev/console >> /dev/console 2>>&&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
Specifies the command path.
