The "parted" command
« on: May 18, 2014, 04:45:27 PM »
I'm inexperienced at Debian  :-[ (Ubuntu-centric until now), and I missed the "parted" command that shows you your partitions in human-readable form (MB rather than cylinders).

Easily installed:
 
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install parted
or from a Synaptic search.

If you want to just look at the size of the file systems and various pieces and parts, another easy and safe command is 'df'

'df -h' will show sizes in human readable format
