View Full Version : [ubuntu] The size of the proc directory

September 21st, 2010, 10:30 AM
In Ubuntu 6.06LTS when I run du -sh /proc the size is shown as 4.8Gb. In Ubuntu 8.04 the size is shown as 0

I know proc is a virtual file system and shouldn't be taken up any disk space. But the results of du on a 6.06 and 8.04 beg to differ.

Is there a difference in the way du see proc or in the way proc is seen in general between both version of Ubuntu?
