Question about FDISK
Do you have an idea what does that '+' means in Blocks columns
as seen below it is 419425019+
Does it signify anything , because for certain disks I do not see that '+'
as the end of blocks?
[root at kali root]# fdisk /dev/sdk
The number of cylinders for this disk is set to 52216.
There is nothing wrong with that, but this is larger than 1024,
and could in certain setups cause problems with:
1) software that runs at boot time (e.g., old versions of LILO)
2) booting and partitioning software from other OSs
(e.g., DOS FDISK, OS/2 FDISK)
Command (m for help): p
