Quiz time - find the filesystem fault!

[ #23257 ]
Hey kids! Here's the df output from a hosted server I'm setting up. It's a Fedora Linux box. Can you spot the configuration faux pas made by the company that installed the OS? And for extra points, was the fellow that set up the box on pot, acid or crack?

[www@olive /]$ df -h
Filesystem            Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1             510M  483M  856K 100% /
none                  249M     0  249M   0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda7              63G  5.2G   58G   9% /home
/dev/hda5             4.9G  1.0G  3.9G  21% /usr
/dev/hda6             4.9G  296M  4.6G   6% /var

Here's a hint: Where are all the tmp files going to go when the #$!%ing ROOT PARTITION FILLS UP BECAUSE IT'S TOO $%#@ING SMALL!

Good luck!

  • I expect that one or the other of /dev/hda2 or /dev/hda3 is /swap, but what about the other one? You didn't accidentally make two of 'em, did you?

    And for extra points, was the fellow that set up the box on pot, acid or crack?

    I'll guess Decaf. Evil stuff, decaf.

  • Where I come from, it's considered a Very Good Thing for /tmp to be a separate filesystem than / , and for people needing big temp to use somewhere else.

    Good luck ...
