Description Jason Duerstock 2001-05-24 16:02:34 EDT
Description of Problem:
Under 2.4.x kernels, df -k returns erroneously returns 0 available space.

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot 2.4.x kernel
2. df -k

Actual Results:
[jason@localhost jason]$ df -k
Filesystem           1k-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1              8222624   3279368         0 100% /

Expected Results:
3000000-some-odd free blocks.

Additional Information:
I believe this is a glibc problem and not a fileutils problem, because if 
I try to install additional packages with rpm, it tells me there is 
insufficient space available.
Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2001-06-01 08:29:03 EDT
There is no 7.1 distribution for SPARC. Do you mean Rawhide, or 6.2?
Comment 2 Jason Duerstock 2001-06-01 09:01:51 EDT
err, sorry about that...this is from rawhide.
Comment 3 Jakub Jelinek 2002-02-04 09:58:16 EST
If this was on sparc64 kernel combined witl gcc-2.96-RH, then this might
be miscompilation of ext2 (which is fixed in gcc-2.96-102 as found on
