mc in ftpfs, symlinks with slash to directories
Last modified: 2015-01-07 19:01:20 EST
Description of Problem:
while browsing remote ftp filesystem, mc
sees symlinks to directories as broken in case when symlink
is created with a slash on its end, like
linktodir -> directory/
and when attempt is made to follow the link in mc, error "No action taken"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make a symlink to a directory and add a slash "/" to the end
of the symlink name.
2. connect to such filesystem via ftp (using mc)
3. the link named "link/" will appear as broken
the link is shown as broken
links should work as expected, double slash should be interpretted
as a single slash
Would the FTP server be a Windows box? You can't add slashes to the
end of a link name on Linux...
Could you setup another test URL?
This seems to be fixed by upstream in mc-4.6.1a-0.9.
