    Flashing red band

    What does it mean when you get a lashing red line/band when you do an ls in a directory.

    I was looking in /root and found that i had a flashing red line on my DCop server entry in there.

    Also, one i managed to install 2 kernel rpms (2.4.18-5) so when i did af rpm -q kernel-2.4.18-5 it reported 2 kernels. When i looked in /boot i also had this fashing red line thingy.

    I solved my kernel problem and it went away.

    I assume its a warning system that says "Hey buddy there's something wrong with this file and this file".

    Thanks

    It means the entry is a broken symlink.

    Those were probably broken when you looked at them because you were not in X.

    If you have the "symlinks" command on your system you can find all the broken links on your system with:

    symlinks -r / | grep DANGLING

    Works better if you are root.
