Hi,

Use find for that task: find / -user <username>.

If you do this as a normal user (i.e. not root) you get a lot of permission denied messages! So become root or use sudo to execute this.

Do have a look at the find man page for more options.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

I guess that ajeetsinghraina is telling you that hole should be whole (a hole you find in a donut, whole means entire or 'all of').

It seems that your english isn't too good (i've seen a lot worse), but as long as we understand you that shouldn't be too much of a problem. A lot of the users here are none-english.
