Description Lawrence Knachel 1999-11-24 12:36:38 UTC
I was patching my anon ftp server from 2.5.0-9 to 2.6-1. After installing
the 2.6-1 RPM (with -Uvh flags) I could not get a direstory listing in
/home/ftp by using plain ls. If I did ls -l they would show up. I tried
this on all the sub dirs and ls worked fine there. Then I uninstalled
wu-ftpd 2.6-1, reinstalled it the results were the same. Then I uninstalled
anonftp and wu-ftpd 2.6-1, reinstalled them and the results were the same.
Then I uninstalled anonftp and wu-ftpd 2.6-1 again, and this time put back
the original anonftp(2.8-1) and the original wu-ftpd(2.5.0-9) from the
RedHat 6.1 CD. After this it is working the same way it always has.
