    Default OpenSUSE 11.1 gone wild

    While updating kernel I suddenly noticed my root partition getting full, update went bad, but the reason my partition got full was that /proc/kcore file was only 256TB. And that is not mistake, -r-------- 1 root root 281474974621696 2009-10-30 09:57 kcore says ls -l

    I was just wondering how the hell is this possible, I got only 10GiB root partition and all

    If you have the install CD, boot into "rescue" mode and run an fsck on that drive.

    /proc is a virtual filesystem. None of the contents of any of the files there are actually present on the disk; they are computed by the kernel as they are accessed.

    If you do du on anything in proc, you'll see the size as being 0.
