    I have connect a HD over USB on my Pi. Works good so on. But it look as have RetroPi a incorrect boot order. It mounts the HD before it check it with e2fsck. e2fsck can not check mounted devices and break the boot with a error. I can continue the boot with ckt-D but theed is suboptimal.Anyone a idea?


    cat /var/log/fsck/checkfs 
    Log of fsck -C -R -A -a

    fsck from util-linux 2.20.1

    you should put log output between code tags on the forum for readability.

    Also – that is not a complete fstab – When postting logs/configs, please post complete logs (via pastebin if they are large).



    also make sure you have the “USB ROM service” disabled. (can be done from retropie-setup). you might want to sudo apt-get remove usbmount also.



    ok … code is in

    and that is the complete error Log. There is no more. I can only give a dmesg output to but this is a little long.

    And if y say i shot activate “USB ROM service” y didn’t now what this make. Or y haven’t understand what i have done. The HD is fix. It will not connect ore disconnect in running. I have link the roms Dir direct to the HD. So “USB ROM service” will be extremely counterproductive. And before y ask, yes, this work perfect.



    fstab is not complete – you should have more than 1 line in /etc/fstab

    not sure what the rest of your message means but I’m saying to make sure the usbmount daemon is not running.

    Are you using google translate ? 🙂 y = you ?



    y = you, correct … fstab completed and the dir with the link added. All good so? Can we go to the main problem? The incorrect boot order.



    It’s easier to understand if you don’t abbreviate words like “you”. I’m too old to appreciate/understand txtspk.. 🙂

    Change the last 2 to a 3 in fstab in the line starting with UUID=45885bbb-3164-4d6d-9a0e-809b428475c2 (or change it to a 0 to skip the filesysten check).

    “man fstab” to learn more about these numbers.

    And also make sure the usbmount daemon is not enabled as mentioned earlier (apt-get remove it)



    OK … 0 work. 3 didn’t. So to change the order did no effect. But it work. 🙂 And i have brave look in manual. 😉

    But is this not an main bug? The System can not mount and then check. That will ever run in a error. It must check and then mount. miss i anything?

    And thank you. 🙂



    did you do the other things i mentioned – removing usbmount ?



    ok … you are right … without usbmount 3 work. 🙂

    one last thing. do you now how i deactivate the boot logo?
    i haven’t found it in rcx.d or rc.local.



    can be done from retropie-setup
