Subject: (7.24) Out of inodes but still space left on disk

If you have still space on your disk but no more inodes then you should
consider rebuilding the partition on which your spool is.
Default options for filesystems are mostly to use 4k / inode. For a newsfs
this isn't appropriate, as articles are in average under 3k. So create
your newsspool with 2k per inode.
If you rebuild you also could adjust the values for block-/fragsize
to 4096/512 so you'll get more space out of your disk than on 8192/1024
(this will be a bit slower than 8k/1k for articles bigger than 4k, which
are a minority so don't use it on a partition dedicated to alt.binaries)
