I get that warning on 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4.i686 with findutils-4.2.20-1
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 17:52:53 EDT
[This comment has been added as a mass update for all FC4 kernel bugs.
 If you have migrated this bug from an FC3 bug today, ignore this comment.]

Please retest your problem with todays 2.6.12-1.1398_FC4 update.

If your problem involved being unable to boot, or some hardware not being
detected correctly, please make sure your /etc/modprobe.conf is correct *BEFORE*
installing any kernel updates.
If in doubt, you can recreate this file using..

mv /etc/sysconfig/hwconf /etc/sysconfig/hwconf.bak
mv /etc/modprobe.conf /etc/modprobe.conf.bak

Problem still exists on x86_64:


root@ontap:~#  uname -a
Linux ontap 2.6.12-1.1433_FC5 #1 SMP Thu Jul 14 18:26:46 EDT 2005 x86_64 x86_64
x86_64 GNU/Linux
root@ontap:~# find / -name no-such-file
find: WARNING: Hard link count is wrong for /proc: this may be a bug in your
filesystem driver.  Automatically turning on find's -noleaf option.  Earlier
results may have failed to include directories that should have been searched.



but seems to be fixed on i686:

root@froth:~# uname -a
Linux froth 2.6.12-1.1433_FC5 #1 Thu Jul 14 18:27:55 EDT 2005 i686 i686 i386

root@froth:~# find / -name no-such-file
Comment 4 Leslie Satenstein 2005-08-09 00:08:32 EDT
Still exists in 2.6.12.1.1398_fc4 
The amd / 386 version 
Comment 5 Jeff Bambrough 2005-08-20 01:52:24 EDT
This still exists in 2.6.12-1.1398_FC4smp as well:

2.6.12-1.1398_FC4smp #1 SMP Fri Jul 15 01:30:13 EDT 2005 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
Comment 6 Leslie Satenstein 2005-08-20 17:13:57 EDT
K3B burps when it reaches certain entries in the /proc subdirectory listing. 
Using K3B, one can easily tell which entry is defective (invalid)

Doesn't WFM.

# uname -r
2.6.12-1.1398_FC4smp

# find /proc/ 1>/dev/null
