hi list.

here's the setup.  i recently had one drive in my raid-5 die.  it has
been replaced and the array rebuilt, i can boot into ubuntu and
everything seems fine.

now the problem - somewhere along the line ubuntu decided it needed to
run fsck on /dev/sdc1 and now it won't let it go.  since that partition
becomes part of the raid-5 during the boot process before the fsck is
run, fsck can't touch it andthen  drops me to a maintenance prompt.  i
can exit that prompt and get into ubuntu no problem.

mdadm says my array is clean.

how do i stop ubuntu from wanting to fsck /dev/sdc1?

there is no entry in /etc/fstab for /dev/sdc1 since it is part of the
raid array so i can't turn off the autocheck there.  where do i go?

thanks in advance.
