Description of problem:
All kernels that read from an IRIX server for nfs will not list all files in
directories that are mounted and also will not list all of the directories that
are really there. But if you know they exist you can go there. We get this alot
and our developers build scripts don't work when it is causing a problem. This
is very fixable. the fix is located at http://www.fys.uio.no/~trondmy/src . it
is the seekdir patch. When I compile my kernel with that patch everything works
fine. I have tested it on 2.4.9 and 2.4.18 and they both will apply...with
2.4.18 you have to change paths in the diff. It would be helpful if you
included this patch in an update and also in rawhide.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.mount irix filesystem
2.look through directories for files and directories that are missing
3. if you didn't find any missing its cause you weren't on the irix machine also
looking to see what your missing :)

the 2.4.18 patch for it....from the
Guess what. this patch is already in the 2.4.9 kernels RH ships
Guess what. rawhide 2.4.17 also had the patch i evidently. I am just looking for
uniformity. 2.4.17 is on one of our servers and if i could get that one i would
use it....but 2.4.18 is out there without the much need patch.
ohh.....must be missing an additional patch or something because the groups are
not translating right execpt for the 2.4.9 you mentioned
tried the new rawhide 2.4.18-0.8 with no luck.
ok..2.4.17 that i thought was working also has this bug. THIS IS RIDICULOUS.
the upgrade kernel 2.4.9 is the only one that seems to work.
2.4.17 .18-0.4 .18-0.8
ls | grep dshipton
ls | grep dshipton
just my example how i can tell....
this is a real problem for us.
This turns out to be a IRIX bug that was fixed.
