No free space on disk, but there is?


SuSE 9.0 Konqueror reports that the disk has 0Byte free space out og 1.8GB, but there is at least 100MB free? Whats up?

This what it shows:
Free space on /: 0B/1.8GB (100% used)

Thanks, but df reports the same. What happened was that during the use of YOU it ran full. I have cleared at least 100MB, but the system still seem to think it is full. But even so I can write a document and save it. However, squid also thinks there is no more room for it's logs, and so fails during startup. It there a flag somewhere that is stuck at "full"?

another example

I use xfce and thunar reported 49GB free but I ran dd if=/dev/zero of=/home/zerofile to wipe unallocated space and the resulting zerofile was 56GB. Go figure. They both used capitol GB so it shouldn't be a gigabit gigabyte issue. You know rounding 1024 to 1000 like Microsoft did.
