fdisk -l does not work


When I enter fdisk -1 in the terminal I get "the command fdisk -l does not exist (I am using L) Is there something I need to do to get the partitioning program for redhat 9 running?

Asked all the time, its not in your $PATH

Try typing:

/sbin/fdisk -l

As that is where it resides in, in the /sbin directory. If you don't like typing the full path to it, add /sbin to your $PATH.

Before asking how to add to your $PATH, this is something else that is asked all the time, try searching the site here... .

I didnt ask how to add something to my $PATH. After asking how to mount a partition, I kept getting the reply type fdisk -l And since it didnt work I asked why here
