i ran a "df -h " command and it spat out this :http://paste.ubuntu.com/45448/; my question is this..are the names under the files system, mounting point or partitions. ?

thank you

This shows the amount of disk usage for your linux partitions in human readable terms (i.e. in gigabytes or megabytes.) The mount points shown are where the partitions are mounted in your linux installation. The tempfs is just that, temporary and is empty when you restart your system.

The "Filesystem" headings are partitions. The "Mounted on" are the mount points. The varlock, varrun, udev, devshm and lrm are for the VFS (virtual file system) See below --



me@there:~>df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 17G 2.7G 14G 17% /
varrun 173M 216K 173M 1% /var/run
varlock 173M 0 173M 0% /var/lock
udev 173M 52K 173M 1% /dev
devshm 173M 0 173M 0% /dev/shm
lrm 173M 34M 139M 20% /lib/modules/2.6.22-15-generic/volatile
/dev/sda3 5.9G 486M 5.2G 9% /home
/dev/sda4 50G 33G 14G 71% /smb

Oh ok thank your for your explanation i understand it; are th the partitions of the varrun, varlock of the virtualsystem temporary; like do they get partioned and mounted when the system boots up again ?
