strange du behaviour
trying to pare down the system on my poor overburdened laptop, and
using du to help me diagnose. I had some source files in /root which
I have since deleted, but I am getting this strange behaviour.
so from /root I try:
hplaptop:~# du -sh ./
but check this out:
[root@hplaptop<517>/home/matt]$ du -sh /*
du: `/proc': No such file or directory
I don't udnerstand why the second command gives a size of 98M for the
directory /root. Is this a sign that something's wrong which I should
try to fix?
Maybe I should say that my hard drive was WAY too full for a while --
I booted up this morning, noticed it was at 99% (!!!!!) and have now
pared it down -- but maybe there was some trouble due to the earlier
anyway, thanks as always,
