large file deletion problem
On my /home partition, I keep having a 2+ gig file that I delete with rm. The inode gets released, but the system still thinks that space is used, so I start getting out of space warnings everywhere (the partition is only 5 gigs) The fix so far is to reboot, and then it recognizes the space as unused.
How can i get the space recognized as unused without rebooting?
The file system is ext3.
I'm using Debian Sarge if that makes a difference.
