RPM -e is not freeing disk space in a RAID0
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:55 EDT
It looks like 'rpm -e' is not freeing space when packeges are deleted. I
have a root filesystem mounted in a RAID0 (/dev/md0) and when a package is
deleted with 'rpm -e' the corresponding disk space is not freed according
to 'df'. Everything else seems to work. When erasing files with 'rm', df
correctly displays the bigger available space. Does someone know if
either "rpm" or "md0 driver" or "df" has a bug ? Any help would be very
If they are libraries that are in use, the disk space won't
be freed until the last program that uses those libraries
Or are you seeing something else?
Without knowing what packages are/were involved, it's gonna be hard to
analyze whether libraries were involved or not. What packages? Do the
packages have libraries?
