Hi, all:

In fact, I'm continuing a closed topic, which can be found at

1)
Code:
pei@pei-GA-870A-UD3:/dev$ ls -l sd*
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8,  0 Aug 15 17:57 sda
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8,  1 Aug 15 17:55 sda1
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8,  2 Aug 15 17:57 sda2
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8,  5 Aug 15 17:55 sda5
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8,  6 Aug 15 17:57 sda6
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 16 Aug 15 17:57 sdb
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 17 Aug 15 17:55 sdb1
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 48 Aug 15 18:18 sdd
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 49 Aug 15 18:18 sdd1
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 64 Aug 16 01:04 sde
As you can see, only sde, no sde1 .
