In this video, Kevin Dankwardt solves the challenges showing you how to format disk partitions with ext4, XFS, and Btrfs file systems. Kevin also demonstrates using the fdisk command to list the available disks.
- [Instructor] Now let's look at the solutions.…How to do the partitioning, formatting,…and we're going to mount and look at the directories.…And then we're going to look at NFS and autofs.…So we want to make some partitions.…So I'm going to list the disks I have on my system, fdisk -l,…and I'll pipe that into grep Disk with a capital D…and that would just list the disks.…
And…I really have…three regular disks,…sda, sdb and sdc.…A and b are 250 gig…and c is one gig.…So sdc is a little thumb drive,…so that's what I'm going to be experimenting with.…So I'm going to partition with fdisk…and I'm going to say /dev/sdc.…Be really careful here, right, a typo, if you accidentally…said a, and that was your system disk,…you'd be in a lot of trouble if you made some changes.…
All right, so, double, triple check,…make sure you're working with the right one here.…Or you're in a VM that, if you wipe it out, it's okay.…All right, so there we go.…Let's see if there's any partitions already.…Yeah, there's some partitions, so let's delete 'em,…
