Summary:                    fsck -A fails ("need terminal for interactive
repairs")
Description: 
fsck -A fails. What actually fails is fsck.whatever for each partition in
/etc/fstab, complaining that it hasn't a valid terminal and thus cannot
perform automatic repairs.

If instead of "fsck -A" one calls "fsck partition" for each partition,
everything works fine.

I attach a copy of my /etc/fstab.

Please explain where do you run fsck -A: from init? from login shell? from
init script?

I run fsck -A from /etc/init.d/rcS, which is called by init:

::sysinit:/etc/init.d/rcS
