piCorePlayer aliases

pCP Team 24 July 2020 pCP 5.0.0

To speed up some common Linux command line tasks we have defined a few aliases.

Alias Description
ce Change directory to /mnt/mmcblk0p2/tce
ceo Change directory to /mnt/mmcblk0p2/tce/optional
m1 Mount the boot partition /mnt/mmcblk0p1
m2 Mount the second partition /mnt/mmcblk0p2
c1 Change directory to /mnt/mmcblk0p1
c2 Change directory to /mnt/mmcblk0p2
vicfg Edit configuration file config.txt using vi
vicmd Edit boot file cmdline.txt using vi
u1 Unmount the boot partition /mnt/mmcblk0p1
u2 Unmount the second partition /mnt/mmcblk0p2

A complete list of aliases is shown below—accurate at the time of writing.

Use the Linux “alias” command to show what is available on your piCorePlayer—see Access piCorePlayer via ssh
