A possible bug in fdisk command???
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
Looking at the following "fdisk -l" output, shouldn't the line "Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes" be "Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 sectors" ???? (note "bytes" and "sectors") It's not a big deal, just little confusing when first looking at the size of the disk. ========================================================================== [root@ipc9 boot]# fdisk -l Disk /dev/sda: 4294 MB, 4294967296 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 522 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 * 1 13 104391 83 Linux /dev/sda2 14 490 3831502+ 83 Linux /dev/sda3 491 522 257040 82 Linux swap Disk /dev/sdb: 536 MB, 536870912 bytes 64 heads, 32 sectors/track, 512 cylinders Units = cylinders of 2048 * 512 = 1048576 bytes Disk /dev/sdb doesn't contain a valid partition table Disk /dev/sdc: 536 MB, 536870912 bytes 64 heads, 32 sectors/track, 512 cylinders Units = cylinders of 2048 * 512 = 1048576 bytes Disk /dev/sdc doesn't contain a valid partition table =============================================================================== Regards, Shan Jing Enterprise Services Unix Group - New York Chief Technology Office (CTO) Global Technology and Operations(GTO) Deutsche Bank Desk: +1-201-593-5624 Cell: +1-201-456-9795 -- This e-mail may contain confidential and/or privileged information.
