Prevent Time-Based ‘fsck’ Checks on Root Partition with ‘tune2fs’

In an embedded system without a battery backed real time clock (RTC), a time-based ‘fsck’ check can be quite annoying. To disable the time-based check, use the tune2fs command on the drive containing the root partition like so:

tune2fs -i 0 /dev/<device node>
