Description Alain Picard 2002-04-12 13:07:48 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020326

Description of problem:
As root, Running ls -al doesn't return all files in a directory.
Only show ., .. and a README file that I added afterward.

There are 12 other files that are not shown. They show up with tree, evolution
or gmc.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Log as root (as a precaution)
2./bin/ls -al  (again to make sure that the alias doesn't interfere)

Actual Results:  [apicard@master configs]$ /bin/ls -al
total 460
drwxr-xr-x    2 root     root         4096 Apr 12 11:47 .
drwxr-xr-x   16 root     root         4096 Apr 12 11:49 ..
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root        14242 Apr 12 11:47 README

Results with tree:
[apicard@master configs]$ tree
|-- kernel-2.4.9-athlon-smp (copy).config
|-- kernel-2.4.9-athlon-smp.config
|-- kernel-2.4.9-athlon.config

|-- kernel-2.4.9-i686-enterprise.config
|-- kernel-2.4.9-i686-smp.config
`-- kernel-2.4.9-i686.config

Expected Results:  To see all files 

Additional info:

With evolution, looked at file properties and they are -rw-r--r-- or 644.
Comment 1 Alain Picard 2002-04-12 13:14:53 EDT
listing sent was cut/paste as user other than root, results were the same for root.
Also problem appears only here but had appear elsewhere a few days ago.
Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-04-12 13:17:51 EDT
This looks like you've been rooted and someone installed a 
fake fileutils. 
Please verify the integrity of fileutils on your installation 
using rpm -V fileutils. 
Comment 3 Alain Picard 2002-04-18 10:06:03 EDT
You were right. I had been rooted.
