6.3. User-Defined Repair

The automatic repair explained in the preceding section performs all tests. This is useful if the extent of the system damage is unknown. However, if you already know what part of the system is affected, the range of the applied tests can be narrowed. Choosing User-Defined Repair shows a list of test runs that are all marked for execution at first. The total range of tests matches that of automatic repair. If you already know where no damage is present, unmark the corresponding tests. Clicking Continue then starts a narrower test procedure that probably has a significantly shorter running time.

Not all test groups are applicable individually. The analysis of the fstab entries is always bound to an examination of the file systems, including existing swap partitions. YaST automatically satisfies such dependencies by selecting the smallest number of necessary test runs.
