Thread: FC6 bizarre copy behaviour

    FC6 bizarre copy behaviour

    I have a USB drive that is automounted by HAL. When I copy files to the drive using a cp command (running as root)

    cp -rvf /drive /media/usb
    it works fine. When run inside of a batch file


    cp reports that it has copied the files, but doesn't. The file time stamps don't change, and the files are not actually copied. I'm using the latest update of Fedora, and I have Selinux disabled.

    What happens if you use the full path of cp ie. /bin/cp
