Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

My main storage partition got full, so I'm deleting files to make room. However, df -k keeps reporting no space available on that partition (/disk). Here's the output of the command several minutes apart while another process is deleting a 30G of space:
What can I do to make the space available immediately?
THANK YOU all for your help!
I kept deleting files and once it got to a certain point, my space started appearing back in the space available column. I did remove the trash but that was a couple of hours before I posted the message, so I don't think that was preventing the space from being reported as available again.
As per any processes, I checked all cron jobs and all running processes but didn't find anything that could have being causing the issue. I didn't have to reboot :-)
Anyway, I ges it needed to have a certain amount of space before releasing it for general use.
