    Smile fdisk not working in openSUSE 11

    Hi,

    The command 'fdsik -l' is not working in bash in openSUSE 11. I was using Fedora 6 earlier and used this command perfectly. Now it does not seem to work. The error shown is

    bash: fdsik: command not found

    Please help me.

    thanks,
    thelink123

    Become 'root' and then run it. Alternatively specify the full path.
    (/sbin/fdisk) As you can see it cannot find the command which means it
    either does not exist or, more likely in this case, it is not in your
    $PATH list of paths. Find it manually and run it, or become 'root'
    whose $PATH includes programs that normal users cannot run (because they
    lack the permissions, so why should they even see them?).

    Good luck.

    Looks like you typed fdisk in wrong, check your spelling and try again.
