Re: ls: reading directory /: No such file or directory

Just Outta Paranoia,
Wouldnt mounting these smb shares with windows (map \\blah\blahshare\
to Q: or something) solve this? because they simply report a [NULL]
file for me... i use xp-pro-sp2 with my zaurus' smb share...

[user@machine-blectchly ~]$ mount
Z:\Home on /zaurus-home type system (binmode)
C:\WINDOWS\TEMP on /tmp type system (binmode)
\\Zaurus-smb\gunwars on /gunwars type system (binmode)
C:\Cygwin\bin on /usr/bin type system (binmode, nounmount)
C:\Cygwin\lib on /usr/lib type system (binmode, nounmount)
C:\Cygwin on / type system (binmode, nounmount)
A: on /cygdrive/a type system (textmode)
C: on /cygdrive/c type system (textmode)
X: on /work/ type system(binmode)

Z is a windows share mount (Tools -> mount network share) to my
zaurus, while \\Zaurus-smb\gunwars\ is a hidden share that for
whatever reason windows cant seem to login to (windows keeps
capitalizing the string for some reason -- even if i set the case in
smb.conf to upper it still rejects it blah blah blah. so i use

Whenever my zaurus is off I get about 2 minutes of HANG, showing lots
of network activity from ls, and then the "reading directory /: No
such file or directory" error. unmounting the gunwars mount fixes
this. it seems that windows can handle it when using its mounts... as
shown here:

[user@machine-bletchly ~]$ ls /zaurus/

-r--r--r-- 0 None     None  0 Jan 1 1989 [NULL]

*turn on zaurus*

[user@machine-bletchly ~]$ ls /zaurus/

-rwxrwxrwx Pheonix     users  103 Dec 13 2007 finger-links.txt
drwxr--r- Pheonix     users  0 Dec 22 2007 lolcat-archive/


please note that because i dont like the mode indicators, i modified
the ls source to strip those (thats why they look different... i'm
used to a more debian/linux like shell... so are my scripts)

also, any idea on using an old XIDat tape reader?
