In this lab it says this:
But in the video the command was "sudo du -shxc --exclude=proc *"
If -x excludes proc why the explicit command of --exclude=proc?
Repetition is good for the soul.
Yes it is not necessary but it shows the use of --exclude= . It is harmless and updating the videos is no small amount of work.
Thanks for clarifying that. I was hoping there wasn't something I was missing there.
