head -n 2 < list1 > list2 
will read from list1, passing it to head to take the first two lines, 
then putting these in a file called list2. Add in a pipe: 
sort < list1 | uniq > list3

Use sudo fdisk -l both 
before and after plugging in the SD card (you can also use df to see what’s 
mounted). If, say, a /dev/sdb appears, with the size equal to the SD card, 
then unmount with umount /dev/sdb1. Now copy the disk image with
