Description mfleming+bugzilla 1999-05-30 10:07:07 UTC
Platform: RH 6.0 on i586 (K6-2 350)

Problem: INN's inndf tool, when invoked normally (no
switches) reports "0" bytes free in whatever directory it's
pointed at, despite inndf -i (reports free inodes) reports
plenty of spare inodes, and a regular df reports (on my
system) over 70MB free.

This in turn causes innwatch to throttle the server
immediately. It's reproducable even after the recent
security-fix release, and I have noted the behaviour on the
binary i386 version with released RH 6.0 and the 2.2-9 rpm
release built from the src.rpm

[news@cartman news]$ inndf /var/spool/news/articles
[news@cartman news]$ inndf -i /var/spool/news/articles
[news@cartman news]$ df

Fixed (by using f_bsize rather than f_frsize as returned from statvfs)
in inn-2.2-12.

inndf always reports 0.

The binary '/usr/bin/inndf' should return the free space in
Kb when called with a path. But it returns ever zero ('0').

So the script 'sendbatch' doesn't work because this zero
return value.

BTW: the update from RedHat 5.2 to 6.0 doesn't work
correctly for inn if it couldn't remove the '/usr/lib/news'

This program is supposed to replace the df | awk... but it
is not working. The problem is that this program is used by
other scripts (including sendbatch...).

I've replaced it by :

df -k $1 $2 | tail -1 | awk '{ print $4 }'

It looks like you compiled with -DHAVE_STATVFS and
not -DHAVE_STATFS.  As it is now it always returns a "0"
for the inndf.  I have gotten the source and recompiled
with -DHAVE_STATFS and it works.
