I noticed this a while ago but wasn't sure, but df shows wrong values
for tmpfs at the moment (current i386-GENERIC from today).
My PC has only 512 Megabytes of RAM, but tmpfs reports random values.
At boot it starts around 665 - 666 MB ram.
$ df -k
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
/dev/wd0g 53324139 5275779 42715124 10% /
ptyfs 1 1 0 100% /dev/pts
tmpfs 681280 4 681276 0% /tmp
$ df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
/dev/wd0g 51G 5.0G 41G 10% /
ptyfs 1.0K 1.0K 0B 100% /dev/pts
tmpfs 665M 4.0K 665M 0% /tmp
This value changes during the day to something completely different.
$ dmesg | grep memory
total memory = 510 MB
avail memory = 491 MB
I don't suspect df as the problem, neither tmpfs.
I first noticed this around 4.99.5 I suppose.
Any ideas ?
