    Problem with /var/lib/ntp/proc. How to get rid of it


    Hello,

    I issued the command (SLES 11) from root du -sh /* but got some errors.
    Its seems that /var/lib/ntp/proc whichs is mounted provokes this error.
    Any advise on how to avoid/fix that?


    Thank U

    Andreas

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    These are pseudo files and directories (they don't really exist, materially such that du can see them). You might redirect stderr from du to a file and/or the bit-bucket (/dev/null) to stifle these errors/warnings. IE,

    du -sh /* 2>/dev/null
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
