Description Wilhelm B. Kloke 1994-12-01 05:20:01 UTC
Union mount -b does not work as expected. The file names accessible are seen neither to the shell globbing mechanism nor to ls. There seem to be other programs unable to find the files. (Just try to configure and make gnuplot.) Fix: unknown How-To-Repeat: $ mkdir dreck $ /sbin/mount -t union -o -b gnuplot dreck $ ls $ ls header.mac header.mac $ ls *.mac ls: *.mac: No such file or directory $

State Changed From-To: open->analyzed The problem is known to be caused by readdir() not working for lkm'ed union file systems.

Responsible Changed From-To: core->bde Bruce wants to document in the FAQ that all union file system features should be asssumed to be broken. I'll leave this bug open and assigned to him as a reminder.
