How do I look at my /dev/hdX contents?

Post by DaLoverhin » Sat, 29 Jan 2005 13:12:16


Hello. I'm using gnome, and use the 'my computer'
icon, or the 'computer' icon to access some of my drives.
I must have done something wrong, because I can't use
that method to look at those files anymore.

Here's my drives:

Hard Disc (/dev/hdd1)
Hard Disc (/dev/hdd3)
Windows (/dev/hda1)
Windows (/dev/sda1)

I try to click /dev/hdd1: Couldn't display "drives:///hdd1.desktop".
I try to click /dev/hda1: Couldn't display "drives:///hda1.desktop".
Anyways, do you know what's wrong?

thanks.

2. cat /dev/hdb > /dev/null DoS

Hello

I have 2.8 GHz Pentium IV with 1GB RAM and 250GB ATA-133 IDE disk
on /dev/hdb.

I did cat /dev/hdb > /dev/null and after a while (5 minutes),
the system went totally unresponsive:

1) man top takes 3 minutes to display man page
2) Switching between console and X takes also a couple of minutes
3) top shows this:

Cpu(s): 1.4% us, 1.4% sy, 0.0% ni, 0.0% id, 0.0% wa, 97.3% hi, 0.0% si

/dev/hdb is auxilliary disk that is not used, is not mounted and the
root filesystem doesn't reside on it (of course). Kernel version is 2.6.3.

Is this behaviour normal?
