Hardware Information

Following the style note, I removed the hardware information for the model that I have and added a lspci section at the end. If the original authors for the other models are still around, could you do the same? Aouellette (talk) 20:46, 16 February 2016 (UTC)

Done for this. Regarding your recent change:

From:

4.1) Unmount all /dev/sdb partitions:
sudo umount /dev/sdbX (where 'X' is a partition of 'sdb')

To:

## Unmount the drive: sudo umount /dev/sdb

Do you think that these statements are equivalent?

Here is a cut from man umount:

Giving the special device on which the file system
lives may also work, but is obsolete, mainly because it  will  fail  in
case this device was mounted on more than one directory.

I actually did not know about that. This could be changed back to the original wording, or the command could also be removed, since there are other ways of unmounting the drive.

Here is the check I performed:
[user@test ~]$ ls /dev | grep sdb
(device connected)
[user@test ~]$ ls /dev | grep sdb
sdb
sdb1
[user@test ~]$ mount | grep sdb
/dev/sdb1 on /run/media/user/{some_numbers} type ntfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,uid=1000,gid=1000,fmask=0177,dmask=077,nls=utf8,errors=continue,mft_zone_multiplier=1,uhelper=udisks2)
[user@test ~]$ sudo umount /dev/sdb
umount: /dev/sdb: not mounted
[user@test ~]$ sudo umount /dev/sdb1
[user@test ~]$ mount | grep sdb
[user@test ~]$ 
(device disconnected)
I'd prefer not to remove but to revert to the first version of the example. More info is better: if the solution is well-described - everybody is happy, if the description is poor - users could refrain from trying it.

Ok, sure. Also, should we completely remove what's left of the hardware section? It definitely is not that useful anymore and anyone can easily add their lspci output to the end of the article.
Aouellette (talk) 20:05, 17 February 2016 (UTC)
I've notified the author of the remaining configuration. Lets wait couple of days (till Sunday 21st, for example) - if he won't appear, I'd suggest to add the model code without lspci output to the final section and completely remove the "hardware" one. Do you agree?

Sounds good. Aouellette (talk) 20:49, 17 February 2016 (UTC)
