Description Chris Kloiber 2003-08-12 15:04:03 EDT
Description of problem: 
Please compare the following short outputs. 
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS (v2.1): 
[ckloiber@lazirus ckloiber]$ /bin/ls -l --full-time 
total 48 
-rw-r--r--    1 ckloiber ckloiber    48952 Tue Aug 12 14:50:27 2003 install.log 
[ckloiber@tuxracer ckloiber]$ /bin/ls -l --full-time 
total 48 
-rw-r--r--    1 ckloiber ckloiber    48952 2003-08-06 16:36:06.000000000 -0400 install.log 
[ckloiber@tuxracer ckloiber]$ touch install.log 
[ckloiber@tuxracer ckloiber]$ /bin/ls -l --full-time 
total 48 
-rw-r--r--    1 ckloiber ckloiber    48952 2003-08-12 14:57:57.000000000 -0400 install.log 
As you can see, the --full-time option is not working at all in REHL AS (v2.1). While reporting 
this, I found it highly unlikely that I could have modified both files on exact second boundaries 
in Taroon-B1 as well. 
Package versions: 
RHEL AS (v2.1): fileutils-4.1-10.1 
Taroon-B1: coreutils-4.5.3-25
Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2003-08-12 17:30:38 EDT
Concerning the Taroon output: The filesystem only stores the times to a
resolution of 1s.
