About me

No mustasch!Hi!

I’m Niko Kauppinen and I live in Finland. I work as a project manager in a IT service company.

When I’m not working I love to have quality time with my family. I am a father of two wonderful children and happily married. Music and especially guitars are my passion but I also spend (maybe too much) time on computer related things and doings.

This is my public notebook where I collect information I’ve found useful. I hope my entries will be useful for others too. And ofcourse all comments are welcome, so I could correct and improve the information.

  3. ‘Lx/format USB mem-Stick in Lx:
    Goo got me to your:

    >> How to format USB memory stick in Linux

    but it did not work for me. It says:

    Permission denied while trying to determine filesystem size


    Otherwise I suggest modification of your instruction to suit
    dummies like me:

    0. Applications-Accessories-Terminal (Open T. window)
    1. Type: fdisk -l then hit Enter (find Lx stick name; maybe: /dev/sdb1, )
    (Note: experiment with the command for ‘fdisk-L, fdisk -L, etc are not equal)
    2. Type: umount /dev/sdb1 (if it is mounted, i.e visible in: Places-Computer)
    (Note: In Places-Computer will be different name, maybe: 2 GB media
    3. Type: mkfs.ext3 /dev/sdb1 (formating into (Lx) EXT3 )
    (Note: To format in FAT32 put: ???? instead of ext3. FAT32 is both Win and Lx)
    4.Type: e2label /dev/sdb1 (to label your stick)
