Knowing which partition


In the console, is there a way or a script to get the partitions informations (via root or sudo):
as:
http://www.thiesen.org/d-i/partition-3.png

This in one command, avoiding pinging fdisk -l /dev/

Thank you

I changed the title of the first post. I wouldnt like to fdisk -l.

I just would like a clear overview like in the link of my whole system. Clear, fast, & easy.
I think I'll have to check hte code of the debian install iso cdimage disks to get to know the code they use to make their hardware checking....

That is what fdisk -l does! The overview in the link was generated by fdisk!

You won't use fdisk but you are prepared to hunt through source-code?!

I suppose there is always system > preferences > hardware information. What exactly are you trying to achieve?
