Yesterday i got a very nice gift from my uncle, he came 2 days ago from china 😉 , a Imation 320GB External Hard Disk and bluetooth headset (eh am trying to configure it in linux!) maybe they are not that good because they are from china (this is what known in Jordan about china products 😛 ) but they works 😀 .
So i started partitioning my new hard drive :),, its a big one so i didn’t know how to partition all of that space :/ , i just created one partition with 100GB size and ext3 as file system,, automount in linux is so nice feature, but the partition name after mounting it is ugly,, so i wanted to label the partition with a nice name,, ahhhh i talked to much 😛 ,, this is the command to label ext3/ext2 partitions:
e2label /dev/sdc1 ext_shaker
Replace the partition (/dev/sdc1) with the one you want to set the label on, and ‘ext_shaker’ by your label.
Now every time hal and gnome-volume-manager automount my external partition, it will mount it under /media/ext_shaker ,, so nice huh ? 😀
