No fsck at bootup

July 15, 2008 — BarryK
Continuing to work on fast booting. The filesystem check of the "pup_save" file gets slower as there are more files in it. Although the "pup_save" file does not shutdown cleanly, it's integrity is not compromised and there is no need to do a f.s. check and repair at every bootup.

So, I have now made it the default not to. However, the 'init' will still do so if the "pup_save" file refuses to load.

Also, I have introduced "pfix=fsck" to manually ask for a f.s. check.

"pfix=fsck" An excellent solution. I do suggest Puppy provide full fsck output when this is invoked.
