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".
It means the entry is a broken symlink.Originally Posted by Bogler
Those were probably broken when you looked at them because you were not in X.I was looking in /root and found that i had a flashing red line on my DCop server entry in there.
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.
