In this video, Kevin Dankwardt challenges you to make three disk partitions, of size 10, 20, and 50MB. Then he challenges you to format these partitions with ext4, XFS, and Btrfs. After formatting the disks you are to mount them.
- [Instructor] Now let's see what you can do…with partitioning and file systems, and NFS and autofs.…So this is all dangerous stuff.…You can wipe out your system if things go wrong.…So, as always, do a backup…and have an extra disk for your work here.…Even just a thumb drive that you could just…wipe out without causing any problems.…But sometimes, right, like for the NFS…you're going to have to change system config files.…
So save the ones you have now…and put 'em back when you're done.…Keep track of what you're doing…or make a new virtual machine and work with that…so if things go wrong you're not…messing up anything you need to keep.…All right, so assuming that you're ready to go…and even if things go wrong it won't…be a big problem for ya, let's try some stuff.…Right, so on your disk there…remove all the partitions so there's…no partitions at all and then make three partitions.…
And we'll make 'em real small so they'll…fit on anybody's disk.…Just a 10 meg, a 20 meg and a 50 meg partitions.…Then format the first one as ext4,…
