Description of problem:
see related closed bugs #126657 and #128418

the problem should be solved with RHEL 3 U3 AS and WS (see
but still appears in different form

Using df for a 2700 MB filesystem mounted via nfs from an Origin 3800
produces the following output:

'cd /mnt/o3800'
'df -k .'

Filesystem               1K-blocks   Used                 Available 
xxx.yyy.zzz:/abc/scratch         1      1                         1

Use%  Mounted on
  0% /mnt/o3800

The correct values should be

xxx.yyy.zzz:/abc/scratch 2836004864  970191548            1865813316  

35%  /mnt/o3800

Also of interest

'df -i'

0% /mnt/o3800

Comment 3 Rik van Riel 2004-09-10 06:55:56 EDT
Helmut, we are working on the following things for U4:

1) add the (f)statfs64 system call to x86 and PPC64 kernels (those two
run with 32 bit /bin/df)

2) add a ->statfs64 operation to the NFS filesystem

3) teach /bin/df to not truncate 64 bit values when running with 32
bits, like it currently does
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2004-09-14 11:02:40 EDT
Clarification: (3) is more than just 'recompile with
--enable-largefile' I think, from discussions with Rik the other day.
Comment 5 Rik van Riel 2004-09-22 17:40:34 EDT
A patch with statfs64 system call has been submitted for inclusion in
the RHEL3 kernel today.
Comment 6 Ernie Petrides 2004-09-24 05:55:17 EDT
A fix for this problem has just been committed to the RHEL3 U4
patch pool this evening (in kernel version 2.4.21-20.11.EL).
Comment 7 Tim Waugh 2004-09-24 06:12:44 EDT
(I think there is still work to do on coreutils.)
