    Command to view/edit partitions


    When I set up Debian, I paritioned the drive using a program that the installer ran. What is the command to run the partition program? I don't plan to change anything, I just want to see what amount of space I created for each partition. For example, I want to determine the size of my swap and /home partitions.

    Specifically, "fdisk -l /dev/hda" (or any other hard drive).

    For just listing the partitions. Try it and see what it looks like.
