    disk partions


    I guess im just stupid, but:
    Code:
    # fdisk /dev/hdb
    The number of cylinders for this disk is set to 24321.
    There is nothing wrong with that, but this is larger than 1024,
    and could in certain setups cause problems with:
    1) software that runs at boot time (e.g., old versions of LILO)
    2) booting and partitioning software from other OSs
       (e.g., DOS FDISK, OS/2 FDISK)
    
    Command (m for help): p
    
    Disk /dev/hdb: 200.0 GB, 200049647616 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 24321 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
    
       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/hdb1               1       24321   195358401   83  Linux
    So the disk is about 200 Gb, and /dev/hdb1 is almost 200 Gb too.
    Code:
    # mkfs.ext3 /dev/hdb1
    mke2fs 1.39 (29-May-2006)
    Filesystem label=
    OS type: Linux
    Block size=1024 (log=0)
    Fragment size=1024 (log=0)
    128016 inodes, 512000 blocks
    25600 blocks (5.00%) reserved for the super user
    First data block=1
    Maximum filesystem blocks=67633152
    63 block groups
    8192 blocks per group, 8192 fragments per group
    2032 inodes per group
    Superblock backups stored on blocks: 
    	8193, 24577, 40961, 57345, 73729, 204801, 221185, 401409
    
    Writing inode tables: done                            
    Creating journal (8192 blocks): done
    Writing superblocks and filesystem accounting information: done
    
    This filesystem will be automatically checked every 23 mounts or
    180 days, whichever comes first.  Use tune2fs -c or -i to override.
    # mkfs.ext3 /dev/hdb1
    mke2fs 1.39 (29-May-2006)

    # mount /dev/hdb1 /extra

    Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
    /dev/hdb1               495844     10544    459700   3% /extra
    What do I do wrong? I want the partion to be around 200 Gb.

    ok.. After a reboot everything is ok. Guess the old partion table was cached somewhere..
