comment ext4 disk space not reclaimed after deleting files
@Rich df always displays the amount available to a user, even if run as root. You have more than that free, look at the difference between Size and Used. Avail is confusing due to the reserved space.

comment ext4 disk space not reclaimed after deleting files
@Rich that's consistent with either, you'd need the df output from before deleting them to compare. I'm guessing #1, though.

comment ext4 disk space not reclaimed after deleting files
@EricRenouf ext2/3/4 all reserve the same 5%, by default. You can override the default via -m , either initially when running mke2fs or later with tune2fs.

@Tshepang that's the postinst script in the package doing an enable. Or I guess shipping the symlinks in the package, not sure if they do that.

comment Having trouble with basic if then statement
Which shell are you using? Neither bash nor dash give me that error message (they both complain of a missing ]). Is it possible you're using csh/tcsh? How are you running this script?

@roaima possibly Timothy runs it as root (which would explain why he needs youruser at the end). It might work somewhere...
