exec-arg didn't work for me unfortunately. I was trying to start terminal in fullscreen mode. The only option that helped was specifying the option in configuration. I am using terminator

comment How do I start/stop mysql server?
In fact, even with sudo it didn't work for me, but then I found in the script the following hint: Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8) and it was ok

+1 that's very nice answer! I like your idea to look in the source code. Could you please tell which version of the fdisk have you looked at?

comment Which numbers does fdisk show?
It says [ 1.632660] sd 2:0:0:0: [sda] 234441648 512-byte logical blocks: (120 GB/111 GiB), i.e. the size is the same as fdisk shows. Could that be that there is some reserved space in the disk? If so what it is used for?

comment Which numbers does fdisk show?
@LGB: Probably it makes sense to ask authors, but obviously if the numbers are different there must be some reason behind it, I don't believe that it is simply an error.

comment Which numbers does fdisk show?
@LGB: thanks for the answer, I am aware of SI binary prefixes, however in my case the measurement unit is byte and bytes are the same in SI and in JEDEC terminology, therefore, it can't influence the answer, can it?

comment How to dump disk sectors?
@ulidtko: I prefer dd, but cat is also fine, although not as clean solution as dd. By not clean I mean there is no way to say: please copy only 512 bytes, in this case ctrl+c is used. Thanks for the tips,I find them helpful.

@ulidtko: +1, good answer, I have done another way around: sudo cat /dev/sda > mydump, ctrl+c, sudo ghex mydump. Do you think makes sense?
