Description Sammy 2007-04-13 00:08:45 UTC
Description of problem:

After updating to coreutils 5.97-12.4.fc6 good symlinks show as dangling.
I am using "ls -bCAF --color". Downgrading to 12.3 does not have this
problem.

Comment 3 Sammy 2007-04-13 13:36:53 UTC
I have investigated this further and found the following:

In /etc/DIR_COLORS and /etc/DIR_COLORS.xterm I have set:

          ORPHAN 01;05;37;41  # orphaned syminks

where 05=blink and others colors. This shows the orphaned syminks as
blinking bold white on red backgorund. Otherwise regular symlinks show
as cyan.

With the latest upgrade and using "ls --color" all symlinks are blinking BUT
if I comment this line in DIRCOLORS then the orphaned symlinks show as cyan
(no different than non orphaned) except when you do ls -l, in which case
only the link target itself shows as blinking, which is correct because I set
missing files to blink as well. I am going to attach my DIR_COLORS.

Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2007-04-17 11:51:12 UTC
Test case:

rm -rf arena
mkdir arena
cd arena
touch file
ln -s file symlink
/bin/ls --color | cat -vet

Actual result:
^[[00m^[[00mfile^[[00m$
^[[01;05;37;41msymlink^[[00m$

Expected result:
^[[00m^[[00mfile^[[00m$
^[[00;36msymlink^[[00m$

Should be fixed in coreutils-5.97-12.5.fc6, shortly to appear in
updates-testing.  Thanks for catching this.
