Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 852399
Non-root-user cannot write in home. There is availible space but not free.

Description of problem:
System monitor and df command show:
# df -h /home
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda4 251G 240G 0 100% /home
(system monitor also says: Free: 11.7 GiB)
If I try to write a file it says that there is no space available
(echo something > file --> write error: No space left on device).
However, root can write!
How reproducible: Always.
Steps to Reproduce:
2a. Check space (df -h /home)
2b. Write a file in home.
No space available for non-root-users
There should be almost 11 GB available for any user.
I have switched off SELINUX.
I have tried to create another user.
This is normal - by default, filesystems are created with some reserved space that only root can write to.
See 'man tune2fs' on how to change this, search for the 'reserved-blocks-percentage' or 'reserved-blocks-count' options.
