I LOVE CLI. There’s nothing more satisfying than bypassing and evading a barrage of colorful windows that get rendered on screen and moving the mouse cursor to click button 1 then button 2 WITH a simple command with parameters and arguments in the command-line interface. So naturally, I am overjoyed when I learn some useful (what I would consider fancy and elegant, but useful seems a more universally practical connotation) cli techniques.
Awesome things Learned in Linux:
sudo fdisk -l
fdisk is the partition table manager in linux. So you can see all internal and external drives AND their partitions (and their sisters and their mothers and their aunts…don’t ask what that means because I don’t know) with fdisk. VERY useful for checking out the location, labels (names), file system, and/or partitions of drives.
ntfslabel(example: ntfslabel /dev/sdc1)
ntfslabel checks the label of a drive formatted using NTFS file system…
