To view your partition table, use the fdisk command.
Log-in as root and type:
Code:
fdisk -l

OK !!!
I've partitioned my disk...
Un put /(4Gb) , /home (29GB), /var (5GB) , /usr(5GB) under different partitions and mounted as directory...
But if I view disk space available under /home (with MC) show 3,70/4 available...

Why?

yes - there's something wrong. is it an older pc? be sure that the disk is recognized right (look at dmesg output). C/H/S or LBA are important.
disk.com (put on a floppy) is a useful program to see if the bios is able to handle the disk correct.
maybe you should copy your data out of home (can you still access it?), unmount and reformat that partition. i use parted for such things but cfdisk or other work too.

The df command is part of the coreutils package. You need to upgrade that package. Either upgrade just that or do a system update, but just that package should fix it.


apt-get install coreutils


That should get you the latest version of coreutils and fix that problem. I had that same problem with my Woody install.

disk.com ?
Where I find it ?

I wasn't able to understand the solution...
The disk is recognized as is. DMES dosen't generate wrong message...

After that, if I fix with:
apt-get install coreutils

My disk was recognize for its full space?
Or
df -h
Told me wrong message?

ThkS 4 All!!!

i can't tell if dmesg shows the right thing - i have not seen it !!!
i also can't tell anything about your prob, since i've got no info!

woudn't you - like - to give us some info helping you to solve this problem?

your df shows up messy, and there's just one partition there, but you said you
had 4 partitonions above? i'm confused about that!

mritch.
