For various reasons, I have two partitions that both have a label of root on an embedded system I'm developing.

The findfs command only finds the first device with the label. Is there a way I can find all devices with the label?


Use the blkid command instead:

blkid -o list -t LABEL=root

If you just want the partitions without extra info, use

blkid -o device -t LABEL=root

You may have to run the command as root (sudo blkid) the first time.
