File inode number

Post#1 by Bogomips » 03 Nov 2014, 19:24

Quick question.

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ ls -il /mnt/live/memory/changes/var/log/messages /var/log/messages
 48 -rw-r----- 1 root root 64493 Nov  3 19:46 /mnt/live/memory/changes/var/log/messages
119 -rw-r----- 1 root root 64493 Nov  3 19:46 /var/log/messages
Different inode numbers implying diuplicated files?

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ df -h /mnt/live/memory/changes
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
-               265M  1.4M  263M   1% /mnt/live/memory/changes
guest@porteus:~$ df -h .
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
aufs            265M  1.4M  263M   1% /
Something to do with porteus or with aufs?

aufs. The root file system is a mirror of the live file system.
