rm'ing files doesn't free up disk space
I'm running FC3 and ran out of disk space on my /hda2 partition
After deleting a huge - and I mean approx 5Gb - worth of files, the df output still shows 0% free. None of these files were linked to other files. They should be well truly gone.
Rebooting and forcing a fsck doesn't seem to have solved the problem.
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda2 18951536 18025248 0 100% /
/dev/hdb1 240362656 84436260 1437 16596 38% /home2
/dev/hda1 101089 9323 86547 10% /boot
none 54940 0 54940 0% /dev/shm
However, I can now still copy large files to say /usr and delete them, but my Samba mounts see the server as 0 bytes free.
