http://forums.opensuse.org – Got an external harddisk and when inserting it into my desktop running openSUSE 11.2, dolphin will recognise it as /media/testing. Wanted to rename the device label from "testing" to "Backup". Googled and understand the way to do it is to issue this command Quote: e2label device new_label Mounting the external harddisk and issuing the above command returns Quote: e2label: Is a directory while trying to open /media/testing/ Couldn't find valid filesystem superblock. Without mounting the external harddisk and issuing the above command returns Quote: e2label: No such file or directory while trying to open /media/testing/ Couldn't find valid filesystem superblock. The command lsusb returns Quote: Bus 001 Device 005: ID 1058:1010 Western Digital Technologies, Inc. How can I figure out the device name (/dev/sdx) of this external harddisk? (Distributions)
