|Re: [PLUG] Symlink Problem|
OK, here's a VERY simple problem that has me flummoxed.
I've mounted my files (which are stored on a separate partition) as /"files".
Within that directory, I have my documents stored in directory
Typing "/files/document" is too long, so I wanted to get a shortcut to it. I
therefore want to create a simple symlink to that directory with a simple,
short directory. I've created a directy "/docs" and am trying to symlink it
I executed: "ln -s "/files/document /docs" to create the symlink. But when I
do a listing of "/docs", I get this:
#ls -lap /docs
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Dec 14 14:44 ./
drwxr-xr-x 29 root root 4096 Dec 14 14:43 ../
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Dec 14 14:44 document -> /files/document
If I list the "/docs/document" directory, I get all my documents listed as I
Can somebody explain to me what I'm doing wrong? It all seems so simple, but
I'm screwing it up somehow.
