Description Neal D. Becker 2003-03-11 13:54:53 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.1; Linux)

Description of problem:
link("/home/nbecker/RPM/RPMS/i386/boost-jam-3.1.3-1.i386.rpm", "/var/ftp/pub/rh8.0/boost-jam-3.1.3-1.i386.rpm") = -1 EXDEV (Invalid cross-device link)

/disk1/nbecker on /home/nbecker type none (rw,bind)

It isn't a cross device link.  /home/nbecker is a bind mount.  /disk1/nbecker and /var/ftp are on the same device.

Linking /disk1/nbecker to /var/ftp works OK.

The semantics of a link on a bind mount should be the same as if there was no bind mount.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
persists.

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
