(mis)understanding mount


[root@serv01 ~] mount

/dev/sda3 on / type ext3 (rw)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
/dev/mapper/VolGroup00-LogVol00 on /research type ext3 (rw)
/dev/sda7 on /home type ext4 (rw)
/dev/md0 on /home/raiduser type ext4 (rw)
/dev/sda2 on /usr type ext4 (rw)
/dev/sda1 on /boot type ext4 (rw)
tmpfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
none on /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc type binfmt_misc (rw)
sunrpc on /var/lib/nfs/rpc_pipefs type rpc_pipefs (rw)
/dev/sda8 on /data type ext4 (ro)
/dev/sdb1 on /media type ext3 (rw)
  • 1st I need to identify what type of filesystem has been placed on the device which has been mounted to the /media directory.
  • 2nd I also need to state what the mount point for the filesystem on /dev/sda8 is.

Is this scenario really this literal to where the type of filesystem mounted to /media is ext3 and the mount point for /dev/sda8 is /data ? LPIC doesn't give examples like this. I looked at man mount but it's showing types to be in front of of the device and directory not behind

*Please keep in mind that I am very new to Linux and reading this stuff is like reading French (no offense to anyone French) but my point is it's extremely difficult to understand (for me any). Mount is the most difficult to me thus far and has me feeling like & maybe even

At any rate, thank you in advance for any assistance provided.

Yes. The command df -T /media will give you the filesystem type also. LPIC??
