My hosting provider upgraded my VM recently, giving me a virgin CentOS. The emacs I had added to the VM years ago was gone, and I forgot what system I used to install it, so I did a web search, found this article, and installed the described snap. The installation went fine and emacs worked fine. To me, the entire process was a black box.
Several weeks later, I started getting messages from cPanel/WHM that :
The filesystem “/var/lib/snapd/snap/emacs/966” mounted at “/var/lib/snapd/snap/emacs/966” reached “critical” status because you currently use 100% of its available inodes.
I posted some information on this topic in the cPanel forum to get help, but the consensus is that the snap performed some gratuitous manipulation of mountpoints that they can’t explain. See the link for technical details and the discussion so far.
The question is, do I need to do something about this message, and if so, what?
