Authors:Martin Kolman <>


The list-harddrives script is primarily meant for use in the kickstart %post scriptlets for listing all individual harddrives on the system.

Output format

The list-harddrives script outputs two values per line separated by a single whitespace: - the device node name (eq. sda for /dev/sda) - the size in MB as a floating point number It does this for each individual harddrive on the system.

Example output:

sda 61057.3359375 sdb 476940.023438 sdc 30524.0

The list harddrives script will not list: - CD/DVD drives (/dev/sr*) - zram block devices - software RAID (/dev/md*) - all device mapper devices - anything that is not a block device
