      RE: [gnubies-il] a few questions about unix

      1) I guess you compiled it not as root (which is o.k.). It is a safety mechanism that will prevent a user from clogging the filesystem. although it will report 100% full, some small percent will be left for root. You shouldn't try to fully load it, as there are usually some "nice" unexpected results/errors occurring with that (some command will not work and you would not know why, on first sight, plus other strange behavior ).

      3 + 4). df --help is you friend (it will teach you a few things, probably).
              free , top , vmstat , lots of them...

      Subject: [gnubies-il] a few questions about unix

      I have been tring to copmile mozila (since I cannot find a binary that is
      linked against glibc 2.1) and this beast to gorwing abuot 560 Mbytes! when I
      reach 60 Mbtyes free on /, I get the worst error I could get: no more space
      left on device.

      1) can it be possible? (how can I make it run until there is .00001 bytes
      free? reconfigure?)
      2) how can I know which mozilla veriosn I am compiling? (some 0.9, I could
      not find where it says exactly which version)
      3) how can I know how much free space I have left on a device (I have beenu
      using control centre and  krusader for this)
      4) how can I know how much free memory I have (RAM) ?
