Hello Suse people,

Running 11.0 with KDE3.5.

I keep getting constant warnings that my /home partition is 99% full.
Of course it is not. / partition is,..... according to

Anyone for ideas on how to figure out what is going on?

Bob S

I always cd to / and then use du -sk | sort -n to find the dir using the

I use du -k --max-depth=2 | sort -n

the -s gives you a total disk space used not by directory

ran it today and found that a NFS mount failed during a backup and it was
written to /mnt/Backup instead so I had an extra copy of /usr and /home
there instead of the external device.

Ken and Mike.

I ran the commands you each kindly provided me. The one Ken provided just
returned an "8036". I ran the command Mike provided and got hundreds of lines
which I don't understand. Boy, it took forever. Went and ate my supper while

Is that first part of the line the size in bytes? Here are the last 20 lines
and I will explain some about what is there:

We are seeing 3 different disks here. Any of those designated 10.2, 10.3.
workspace, and datastorage are on different drives. The one that concerns me
is the last entry the . partition.

Somebody can tell me what I am looking at here, please, and is the problem

Another dumb thought just occured to me. Does dd and rsync make temporary

PS to Dave Rankin. I looked at every one of those log files.
PS to Anton. I also followed your advice to no avail. Nothing strange.
