    Difference in commands??

    What is the Debian/Knoppix equivalent to:

    gedit

    I'm trying to edit my /etc/fstab , but the writer of the article I'm using to guide me apparently used this command on a Fedora distro. It doesn't work on knoppix!

    root@ttyp0[knoppix]# gedit /etc/fstab
    bash: gedit: command not found

    Are you working from a console (text mode) or from an x-terminal in KDE (etc)?

    If you are working from a console nano is a pretty easy to use editor.

    Gedit is a graphical editor, if you are working from an x-terminal try kate, which is part of KDE.

    Well, lets see... In another attempt to mount my usb thumb drive, which has FOUR PARTITIONS on it when I only want one, I have created a /mnt/usb directory and put an entry for it in my /etc/fstab using Nedit (I just randomly picked an editor that seemed to work!) My entry is as follows:

    /dev/sda1 /mnn/usb vfat defaults,users,noauto, 0 0

    Someone pointed out to me an entry in my dmseg:


    Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...
    usb.c: registered new driver usb-storage
    scsi2 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices

    But I can find nothing in my directories called scsi2....so I really don't know what to do with that!

    Trying to mount any of my numerous partitions gets me :

    not a valid block device

    What do you think??
