I'm just learning some Linux commands and will like to know what the "-p" command means please?
$ mkdir temp/stuff/things
$ mkdir -p temp/stuff/things/frank/joe/alex/john
computer crashed and now the external usb won't mount.
i tried repairing but it still doesn't work:
hh@spain ~ $ mount /dev/sdc /mnt/temp
mount: only root can do that
hh@spain ~ $ sudo mount /dev/sdc /mnt/temp
[sudo] password for hh:
mount: mount point /mnt/temp does not exist
hh@spain ~ $ mkdir /mnt/temp
mkdir: cannot create directory `/mnt/temp': Permission denied
