Before I start my new installation of Slackware I need to know which description to give the installer.
Here's what my Nvme drive says under fdisk:

Code:
Disk /dev/nvme0n1: 232.89 GiB, 250059350016 bytes, 488397168 sectors
Disk model: Samsung SSD 970 EVO Plus 250GB        
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disklabel type: dos
Disk identifier: 0x22e42fd4

Device         Boot Start       End   Sectors   Size Id Type
/dev/nvme0n1p1 *     2048 488396799 488394752 232.9G 83 Linux

Which is the right description for the nvme drive?

Is the correct description for my Samsung SSD 970 EVO M2 drive nvme0n1 OR> is it nvme0n1p1?

See screenshot for more info:-

Moving this to Slackware, Alex, have fun :)

Chris
I ran Slackware for 9 years and took a 3 year break to enjoy Debian, Manjaro , Linux Mint and other distro's with Ubuntu under the hood. Learned some neat stuff.

***Still keeping my Linux Mint 20.3 and my Debian 10 Buster installs.***

Back to Slackin again!

If needed, you can probably ping @captain-sensible - I think? I'm pretty sure they're a Slackware guru, or at least a high-proficiency user.

My memory could be off, but I'm pretty sure they're slackers.

(And no, Slackware is not dead yet.)
