http://www.linuxforums.org – Howzit Folks? I get the following results for various commands and can't figure out what is causing the discrepancy: df -h / Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/sda3 2.0G 2.0G 0 100% / du -hx --max-depth=1 / 0 /proc 12K /mnt 20K /tmp 4.0K /opt 14M /sbin 0 /sys 14K /media 4.0K /selinux 4.0K /srv 4.0K /winsys 4.0K /var 4.0K /usr 4.0K /home 0 /dev 8.1M /bin 258M /lib 18M /lib64 44M /boot 16K /lost+found 24M /root 44M /etc 408M / Can anyone tell me why there is a difference of 1640 MB between the 2 commands for the root partition?
