    knoppix live cd - utility to check hard drives


    Hello,

    Can somebody out there tell me how to find the utility on the Knoppix 8.3 LiveCD that can check the health of my hard drive??

    I've searched but cannot locate the utility.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    my question is fairly similar, i don't have knoppix yet but i was wondering if it had resize2fs or some utility like that to resize my fs/partition because i would like to do a dual boot with vectorlinux but its installer is having issues with resizing the existing partition . So if somebody could tell me if you can do that with a livecd or point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated

    For file system checks, you could always just fire up a terminal and use fsck (you may have to use a specific version, like reiserfsck).
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.
