fdisk partition size differs from mounted partition size
I'm having some problems with paritioning my primary hard disk, it's a little difficult to explain what's going on so I'll break it down, sorry if this makes the tone of the message a bit bland:
I have a 9 GB scsi HD which I have partitioned up to put RH9 on.
Among the various partitions I made to do this I also made a 5gb ext3 partition that I plan to store a load of data on.
This was the last partition I made during install and for some reason I didn't notice that it didn't fill up the rest of the available space, only 100mb of the 5gbs of space is used. I only noticed it when I tried to copy the data accross.
I used fdisk to delete the 100mb partition and create a new one that took up the whole 5gb and formatted it to ext3. Only problem is that when I now check the size in RH it's still 100mb, but according to fdisk it takes up the whole space... hmmmmm
I had one message that said something about the kernel still using the old partition table. How do I get it to update to the new table? Sorry if this is a basic problem...
