Alternative to ntfslabel


Hi,

I have both Linux and Windows on my PC. I want to read the label of a Windows partition from Linux. From search, I found ntfslabel can do that. But it is not installed on my Linux. I do not want to install it (too many things installed). Is there any alternative to ntfslabel?

Any information would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

If you have e2fsprogs installed:
Code:
blkid -s LABEL /dev/xxxx

This is exactly what I am looking for. It works, it is simple. I do not want for a "small" thing to install another package..

Thanks.
