Linux installation data

Sometimes, it could be useful to remember the data of installation of your Linux system, even just to be proud of the long years of life of your Linux distribution without big problems.

A simple way to know that date is with the command:

$ sudo dumpe2fs /dev/sda1 | grep 'Filesystem created'

that shows the date of creation of filesystem, in the indicated partition.

If you are not sure about your the root partition, check it using the disk free command:

$ df -h

the root partition is the one mounted on “/“.

Enjoy! 😉
