Description hot_redox 1999-06-07 17:10:53 UTC
df does not work on mountpoints that have a space in the
name.

Example:

[root@genie home]# mount /dev/hdd "music cd 1"/
mount: block device /dev/hdd is write-protected, mounting
read-only
[root@genie home]# df
Filesystem 1k-blocks Used    Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda2  4191269   3859883 331386    92%  /
df: /home/stuph/music\040cd\0401: No such file or directory
[root@genie home]#

I think this also affected Redhat 5.2.

Confirmed in test lab.  Will work (sorta) if you directly quary the
mount point and enclose it in quotes.  Will get something like:

Filesystem           1k-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
df: /tmp/mount\040point: No such file or directory
-                      9717839   8773132    440459  95% /tmp/mount
point

Fixed in fileutils-4.0-2 and later
