file system question


Hi,

How do we check what file system is using specific directories? Here is the outout from my box.

# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/hda: 41.1 GB, 41110142976 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 4998 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 * 1 1275 10241406 83 Linux
/dev/hda2 1276 2550 10241437+ fd Linux raid autodetect
/dev/hda3 2551 3825 10241437+ 83 Linux
/dev/hda4 3826 4998 9422122+ 5 Extended
/dev/hda5 3826 4207 3068383+ 82 Linux swap


What file sytem are using hda1, hda2, hda3, hda4 and hda5?

would mount be what you are looking for ?

Code:
it-etch:~# fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 160.0 GB, 160000000000 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19452 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1   *           1         851     6835626   83  Linux
/dev/sda2             852       19452   149412532+   5  Extended
/dev/sda5             852        1181     2650693+  82  Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda6            1182       19452   146761776   83  Linux


username@it-etch:~$ mount
/dev/sda1 on / type ext3 (rw,errors=remount-ro)
tmpfs on /lib/init/rw type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,mode=0755)
proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
procbususb on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw)
udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw,mode=0755)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,noexec,nosuid,gid=5,mode=620)
/dev/sda6 on /home type ext3 (rw)
nfsd on /proc/fs/nfsd type nfsd (rw)
rpc_pipefs on /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs type rpc_pipefs (rw)
Err sorry didn't get creative on this machine at all.. not many partitions to display.

maybe this system will be a better example..

Code:
mail:~# fdisk -l

If it's mounted try "df -T" - if not try "file -s" on the device name.

Use the commands blkid or mount.

Thanks for these,... I didn't know the "file -s" command.
