I need help please

I am using Suse 11 and love it

My question is that I have a total of 4 hard drives installed on
computer

How do I search all 4 hard drives for certain file or files ?

Where is the search function ?

Thank you very much

Happy Holidays

John

use konqueror

goto your root filesystem (/ in the location bar)

tools in the menu bar

find files…

check include subfolders

is all 4 drives are mounted it will search them

More linux like is:

Type on the console

Code:

find / -name filenname


“filenname” may contain wildcards. Blanks in filennames have to be
escaped by \ since a non escaped blank means that the next filenname
starts.

BTW: It’s not more linux like it’s even faster and more flexible if you
learn about regular expressions and piping. :wink:

Greetings

Erik
