Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 103679
ls -la Input/output errors
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:58 EST
Description of problem: "ls -la" on NFS filesystem first produces Input/output
errors then followed by the correct results
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: probably easy to reproduce
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mount NFS filesystem
2. Cd to the mounted filesystem
3. Perform an "ls -la" in some directories
Actual results: ls -la returns "ls: file/dir Input/output error" for each
file/dir, followed by the correct expected results of an ls command. Sample
[root@perseus1 kleung]# ls -la
ls: .: Input/output error
ls: ..: Input/output error
ls: .gtkrc: Input/output error
ls: Oracle: Input/output error
(and so on)
drwxr-xr-x 39 kleung users 2048 Sep 3 12:31 .
drwxr-xr-x 45 root root 1536 Aug 14 15:32 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 kleung users 120 Sep 3 12:29 .gtkrc
drwxr-xr-x 4 kleung users 1536 Aug 28 10:22 Oracle
(and so on)
Expected results: ls -la should provide a listing of all the files/dirs in a
Additional info: ls -la can obviously see and list the files in the directory
since the correct results are returned following those "Input/output error"
messages. RedHat ES 2.1 prints results of an "ls -la" on the same directory
without the errors, and so do RedHat 7.2, 7.3, 8.0, and 9.

A simple "ls" or "ls -a" does not generate the Input/output errors, only when
you use the "-l" option.
Which current release fixes it? I am running the newest beta version of ES3. We
want to migrate all of our servers to enterprise, but need GCC 3.2 which is why
ES 2.1 isn't right for us.
