Linux Filesystems 101 - Block Devices
Welcome to the first course in the Linux Filesystems series. The 101 course introduces basic block device management concepts.
Who Will the Course Benefit?
- Linux users looking to improve their understanding of how the filesystem is handled in the OS
- Users considering installing Linux for the first time
The lesson plan starts with information on how to discover what block devices are installed on a machine. It then discusses partitioning and formatting a block device, and finally touches on how to mount filesystems.
This is the first in a series of courses. Other courses in the series will be linked here as they become available.
Students should have some basic understanding of navigating a Unix-like directory structure. If the student knows how to use
ls, that's probably sufficient.
