thanks for all your help,
i will again write some feedback...
i used the dh -f
command the get the harddisk overview..
mfc-falter:~ # df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda6 20G 3.8G 15G 21% /
udev 439M 100K 439M 1% /dev
/dev/sda7 89G 527M 84G 1% /home
/dev/sda1 5.4G 45M 5.4G 1% /windows/C
/dev/sda2 116G 46G 71G 40% /windows/D
and for the single directories i used du -h
command..-h is for the human readable format..
to get all registered "human" users, i just opened /etc/passwd file with less command and searched for /home/ directory..the i counted them..as i had maximum 7-8 users on a single machine, counting them manually wasn't really a big problem.
anything else, any corrections?
