View Full Version : File search/adding drives
13th October 2004, 02:48 PM
:confused: Two questions. If I am looking for a particular file is there a way to perform a search? I've looked but cannot find anything like search or find. Also, when I installed Fedora, the install located both of my drives and I opted to install only on one. Now when I look at Computer I can only see one drive, how do I get the other one to show up? I have installed NFS on the machine and my ultimate goal is to test how this reacts with other machines. Is there a website with directions? Thanks for your help.

Click the Redhat icon, there should be a Find or Find Files menu entry there. If not, open terminal and type locate followed by the string you are searching for.
In case if you get this message after typing locate, warning: locate: warning: database /var/lib/slocate/slocate.db' is more than 8 days old, then type updatedb on your terminal as root (su). Wait a while for it to complete, then try to locate again. Hope that helps. :)

or in terminal good old find ./ -name "the file I want"
(or am I old fashioned?)

To add a partition try qtparted (http://qtparted.sourceforge.net/).
First read the FAQ (http://fedorafaq.org/#installsoftware) about software, then uncomment newrpms from /etc/yum.conf and run [code]yum install qtparted[/url]
