Hi All,

After generating tiles of my city via Mapnik I am facing strange
problem that my files system is showing full in-nodes.
That I can't make more folders and tiles this is due to large number
of generated tiles.
But I am wondering that I have generated the tiles only for my own
city and city is not that big.
For now I have deleted some tiles to work on it, Now these are:

parveen at linux:~$ df -i
Filesystem            Inodes   IUsed   IFree IUse% Mounted on
/dev/sda3            3203072 3123373   79699   98% /
none                  211335     869  210466    1% /dev
none                  215338      13  215325    1% /dev/shm
none                  215338      67  215271    1% /var/run
none                  215338       3  215335    1% /var/lock
none                  215338       1  215337    1% /lib/init/rw

I am using ubuntu 10.04 and ext4 file system.
Now I want to know that how this problem can be Solved or how to
increase the number of inodes or how openstreetmap manages it for all
the world.

Thank You.
