Yeah. something is really wrong with reporting disk usages since last
few days rawhide updates.
First seen after the famous gawk broke my initrd
justine [8:34] root /etc#df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda3 41G 2.9G 36G 8% /
none 632M 0 632M 0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda1 14G 8.4G 4.2G 67% /vmware
btw same w/o -h
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda3 42829268 2947356 37706312 8% /
none 646716 0 646716 0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda1 13844044 8770988 4369816 67% /vmware
Hmm last time i had ~10G free on / but now my partition has 36G free ???
My home dir on that partition contains 16796m of data
justine [8:42] root /home/xl#du -ms .
Looks like a curvature of space on my disks ;) nice.

Man, n.: An animal so lost in rapturous contemplation of what he thinks
e is as to overlook what he indubitably ought to be. His hief
occupation is extermination of other animals and his own species, which,
however, multiplies with such insistent apidity as to infest the whole
habitable earth and Canada. -- Ambrose Bierce, "The Devil's Dictionary"
