How do I know which one is being loaded, can't seem to find it in dmesg.

Yes I can rebuild the files, or just link them to another place.

Have not tried newsyslog, as the scripts rotate them automatically.. will
do so.. thanks for this.

Then multiple that by another 10 for each process... SMTP, SEND, DNSCACHE,
RBL1 RBL, IMAPS, etc... 10 logs are kept for each process, and there are
10 different processes which usually takes a day to 1 1/2 days to fully

Root is only 384K...
I just found it, thanks to Viktor Lazlo who suggested I use the du command... I
found that 40658 of the 128990 1k blocks used, is being used by my
IMAPS server which has its bin, doc, and man dirs under /opt
This is the culprit... I can now move that out and link it... as a
shortcut.. When I build from source, I did not notice where it went... I
could have changed it then... A lesson for me...
Thanks for all your help...
