I would like to hardlink two directories
As stated by the man pages i could do that under the
identity of root user with the command
ln -d source dest
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.ln -d toto titi
Actual Results: ln: creating hard link `titi' to `toto': Operation not permitted
Expected Results: the hard link should be created.
Most file systems do not support links to directories as any user.
