highlighted in a great big box in red. Was that not clear enough? What
can we do to make that more clear?
You can try many other places for support, such as Stackoverflow,
Reddit's /r/LearnPython, or the Python tutor mailing list:
but I expect most of them will tell you the same thing. You should try
to give a *minimum* example of your problem, not your entire script.
Start by reading here:
As for your SyntaxError, the problem is line 99:
> File "sd.py", line 99
> * cmd = "blkid -o export %s | grep 'TYPE' | cut -d"=" -f3" % (fs)*
> * ^*
> *SyntaxError: can't assign to literal*
The arrow ^ is pointing to the wrong equals sign, but simplifying the
code and adding spaces makes it clear:
cmd = "spam" = "eggs"
gives the same error. Perhaps you mean == (equals) or perhaps the second
assignment shouldn't be there at all?
