Bonager – The Boot Scan Manager for your ubuntu desktop

Bonager is an easy way to manage that unpredictable and sometimes very annoying disk scan that happens when the computer is turned on. When installed, you take control of when you want that disk scan to occur. You even receive a warning before the next scan happens so that you are not surprised by it. And of course, you are given the option to postpone the scan.

Bonager is EASY to use. So easy, that everything can be done within three clicks and requires no configuration.

One thought on “Bonager – The Boot Scan Manager for your ubuntu desktop

  1. Since the default filesystem for Ubuntu is ext3, a journaled filesystem, it does not require the forced periodic checking as would be desirable with ext2 (ext3’s non-journaled predecessor). It is possible to disable forced periodic checking of the filesystem using tune2fs. You will need to know the device name of the partition on which your root (/) filesystem resides. The following command would be for a filesystem on ‘/dev/hda1’:

    sudo tune2fs -c 0 -i 0 /dev/hda1

    Setting these filesystem parameters thus makes Bonager superfluous as the forced periodic check of ext3 filesystems is superfluous anyway.
