guys i need a bit of a help
I have been given a task to find out the following on a local file system: 1. the mount points
2. the actual raw partition which is mounted.
3. the total size of the partition
4. the free space on the partition
5. list the directories connected directly to the root file system.
6. which of these directories are not the local mount points.
HOW do i find the local fily system. I used the df -lk to find it out and i got the following information, is it right???
The answers to questions 1 through 4 can be found in the output you posted from the df -lk command. If you don't understand the output then type in:
for an explanation of how the df command works.
You can find the answer to question five by typing in this command:
ls -l /
The answer to question 6 is any directory that appears in the ls listing but does not appear in the df listing.
