This is very common and is (mostly) harmless.
ext3 and ext4 have journals and a file system check works much faster (almost instantaneously) than ext2.

If fsck does a repair, it is often just releasing an inode and freeing the blocks belonging to the inode. If a file was deleted (the file name was removed from the dictionary) but the inode was still in the dictionary and the blocks still associated with the inode because something was still accessing that file, it can cause this to happen.

the time stamp is in the future

Puppy first copies the kernel vmlinuz into ram memory and starts executing the instructions in ram, which then copies initrd to ram (that is, the initial ram drive) and starts executing it. This is before the Puppy sfs files are found and mounted and before your save file is found and mounted.

The init script in the initrd file does this:

Code:
[ "$TZ" ] && export TZ
hwclock -l -s

which sets the system clock which fsck will use when checking time stamps in the file system that it is checking.

The -l hwclock option tells it to use local time, but at this point, Puppy does not know your time zone. So the system time may not agree with the time stamps in the file system you are checking.

You can add the parameter TZ to your kernel boot parameters, for example:
Code:
... pfix=ram TZ=EST5EDT ...

but the TZ variable usually is the name of a timezone file, and the initrd does not have those files. Maybe something like TZ=UTC+5 would work, I haven't tried it.

You should not fsck a savefile that is being used by a running Puppy, it can corrupt it. You can force a fsck with the -f option, for example:

Code:
fsck.ext2 -vf savefile.2fs

In the Xenialpup repository is a pet for qbat.
A battery charge monitor for the tray.
Really good program when it works.
http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-xenial/qbat-0.2.2.pet

Qbat will not run.
Needs Qt5 stuff that is not in Xenialpup.

Why is qbat in the repository if it will not work in Xenialpup?

It cannot be good that the main filesystem /mnt/sda1 is being left corrupted. This will eventually result in data loss...

As it turns out, this error does not occur when the file is clean. I suspected that it was from the unclean dismount -- it appears that it is.

I have multiple save files. I only check them when they are unmounted. If the umount worked correctly, I wouldn't need to check them at all... Wink

The basic fsck should select the appropriate tool to check a particular volume. The current tool takes space, and does nothing...

BTW, I should add that this is the 64 bit version.

Hi Rerwin,

OK, I have installed both the sns 2.2.1 and the network_connect_update-20180930.

Seem to have the same behavior. Tried a couple reboots. It ends up that the connect button fails to connect, so I delete the configuration and then connect via eth0. It then took me 2 attempts to get a connection.

It appears that the initial (upon boot) attempt to connect fails with a beep. The connect button fails with a beep. I don't recall if there was a beep on the first attempt to connect via eth0 (it might have failed silently), and the next click on eth0 was successful... Very weird!
