Hello, there, Happy new year everyone!
I am puzzled here. Could some expert help me shed some light on
this may not be a centos specific Q..
i have a linux machine. and the root partition (/) is full..
so I moved a dir from /data to /var (/var is on a different
partition), and created a link from /data/fa to /var/xyz, the files
under /var/xyz is about 8G,
so I thought this should free some space for me, but when I used df,
it gave me similar results before and after the move.. and my rpm
installation would fail due to the lack of space..
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/cciss/c0d0p6 15235040 15232452 0 100% /
/dev/cciss/c0d0p8 other partitions have free space....
I was confused on why moving a 8G file to another partition did not
free some space for me?
and I did see that the disk usage for the destination partition/disk
increases after the move..
any pointer is appreciated!
