disk space anomaly
I have just installed Debian (woody) on a new system. I created a 2.5Gb
partition to use as /usr/local.
Currently, no software has been installed in /usr/local or no files have
been copied in that partition. A few empty directories have been created
by some package installation scripts.
When I check using cfdisk, cfdisk shows the size of /usr/local as being
When I check using df, here is what I get:
/dev/hda9 2166280 646320 1409920 32% /usr/local
/dev/hda9 2.1G 632M 1.3G 32% /usr/local
Output of du -ah :
What is going on ? Is there a problem with the woody version of the
package that provides df ? Is there something I am missing ? What is
occupying 632Mb of space on /usr/local (as shown by df) ?
