A couple of years ago, I did the automatic distribution update from 14.04 to 16.04. For the first time in my life, I was able to continue to use the computer after the automatic distribution update. As usual, the software repositories are all muntered, so system updates don't work properly, but I've gotten by.
I am going to do a clean installation of 18.04, however. In order to be able to configure my system more easily after the installation, I exported my command history to a text file.
$ history > /.../20180915_Command_history.txt
Beautifully, the resulting text file contains line numbers. Somewhat mysteriously, the first line number is 76. After looking at the first few lines, it looks like there were probably some previous commands.
- Do the line numbers just start at 76 for some reason?
- If not, is there any way that I can see lines 1 to 75?
