[arch-general] systemd and btrfs

Hello All,

Just for the sake of archives, I had noted a few days ago, that systemd won't 
pick up my home partition after an unclean shutdown. The message is available 
at http://www.mail-archive.com/arch-general@archlinux.org/msg28445.html

However, a later and unrelated discussion revealed the problem(I hope so, am 
no longer on systemd nor am I going to try a forced shutdown), that btrfsck 
does not honour traditional fsck methods.

The thread is here http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.linux.arch.general/43354

When systemd refused to mount my home partition, it was indeed on btrfs and I 
could not debug it easily.

Taking the advise from the thread, I have set the fsck parameter in fstab to 
0, though I am not back on systemd.
