first I do a df -k
then I delete a very large file (and all the links to that file
then I do a df -k

There is no difference in filesystem usage. How can I reclaim the space
and what is happening?

Kill the process(es) that has the file open. If a process has a file
open and that file is deleted, the disk storage will remain allocated
until that process closes that file.

1. df -v versus df -vf

Why would a df -v report usage greater than df -vf would?

# df -v
Mount Dir  Filesystem              blocks      used      free   %used
/          /dev/root               470978    466828      4150   100%

# df -vf
Mount Dir  Filesystem              blocks      used      free   %used
/          /dev/root               470978    408284     62694    87%
