fuser -dV /dev/<lv>
Shows files, within the filesystem, that have been dereferenced but
whose space has not be freed because a process has the file open. The
'-dV' options are undocumented on my AIX 4.2.1 machine. To get these
options I had to download a fix from IBM's support site. Can't remember
the APAR number but you should be able to find it.
lsof -s /dev/<lv>
This displays open files in file system. You may have to download this
from the Bull site http://www-frec.bull.com/
From both commands you get the PID and the Inode of the open file. Can
use 'ncheck -i' to get filename from the inode. The command 'ls -i'
could prove useful as well - lists the inodes.
PS. If its the /tmp file that is filling it maybe a shared library
caching problem. Run slibclean and see if makes any difference.

1. Can msdos file system handle double space DOS file system ?
Just wonder whether the msdos file system in Linux can handle double
space DOS system. I have a double space DOS disk partition. When I mount
the partition with msdos file system, I only see top level DOS files.
I would like to access the regular DOS files. I have linux 1.3.2 kernel.
Can any new kernel handle that ?
