Partition size mismatch
I'm trying to track down why my /var partition is only mounting as half
the size as reported by fdisk or parted. I'd appreciate any suggestions
or other information.
df reports this (approx 2G):
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda7 1968588 833836 1034752 45% /var
parted reports this (approx 4G):
Minor Start End Type Filesystem Flags
7 1231.576 5137.976 logical ext2 cfdisk also reports the
partition as being 4G in size.
This partition was previously ext3 before today. I converted it back to
ext2 using tune2fs -O ^has_journal /dev/hda7.
I thought it was a 2G partition until I fired up Partition Magic to
increase it, and noticed that it was already 4G reported by Partition
Magic. That's when I booted back to Linux and discovered that parted and
cfdisk agree with Partition Magic. It's just the mounted size that
I'd prefer not to mess around with the size of it if I can first figure
out why it's being mounted a different size than what the partition table
Thanks in advance,
