There’s several ways of accomplishing this. I will list all the methods beneath, just pick the one that fits the situation/you.
- Filesystem tunable
- Grub boot parameter
- Placing command files on your root device
- Active reboot without FSCK
Use the tune2fs command to tell your filesystem to have a max count of mounts before a check to 0 to disable it.
# tune2fs -c 0 /dev/sda1
-c max-mount-counts Adjust the number of mounts after which the filesystem will be checked by e2fsck(8). If max-mount-counts is 0 or -1, the number of times the filesystem is mounted will be disregarded by e2fsck(8) and the kernel.
Grub boot parameter
Add the following at the end of your grub boot linux line.
This can be done by editing “grub.conf” or by editing the boot command via the grub menu at boot.
Placing command files on your root device
To disable the filesystem check on boot.
# touch /fastboot
To enable a filesystem check on boot.
# touch /forcefsck
Active reboot without FSCK
# shutdown -rf
-r Reboot after shutdown. -f Skip fsck on reboot.
