resetting journal on ext3 system ...
I came across some rather peculiar happening with Woody on my 8500 (it's
a stock system, except for a 2.4.20 kernel). When I run a df as root on
the system, I get:
kaiso:/# df -k
Filesystem 1k-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda7 495844 455382 14862 97% /
/dev/sda8 1032088 741300 238360 76% /usr
/dev/sda9 1519116 1056316 385632 74% /misc_space
/dev/sdb 4392296 1487760 2681412 36% /home
The root partition is the things worrying me. When I check all of the
sub-directories within root though:
kaiso:/# du -xsm /
I only get about 76 MB of files. When I do this in / , however:
kaiso:/# du -s .
The only thing I can think of is my journal file has become rather large.
Is that the case, and if so - is there a way to reset the journal on my
filesystems, so I can choose more manageable sizes ?? I tried running
tune2fs -J size=64, but I was told there was already a journal on the
If I'm wrong about the journal becoming too large, what else could this
P.S. The above e-mail address is bogus. To get the correct one, replace
the "4" with "for"
