SubjectRe: lsattr fails in 1.3.71
Ulrich Windl:

: Yesterday I've been playing with lsattr-0.5c. I think the output speaks
: for itself. (I have compiled the program with gcc-2.6.3 as a.out on
: top of Slackware 2.4, but with the kernel sources 1.3.71 installed).

: % lsattr /
: lsattr 0.5c WIP, 17-Aug-95 for EXT2 FS 0.5b, 95/08/09
: //zIma: No such file or directory
: //zIma: No such file or directory

<enormous amount of junk deleted>

Well, let's see. First "man lsattr":
lsattr has been written by Remy Card <>,
the developer and maintainer of the ext2 fs.

There are none :-).

That is good. So the bug is not in lsattr. Then what is wrong?
It looks like a libc problem with struct dirent somewhere.
Now the Changelog says:
Fri Oct 27 18:07:48 1995 <>

* iod.c (iterate_on_dir): Don't assume that d->reclen is the size
of the dirent structure; it isn't under Linux.

So, for the time being my conjecture is that you complain
about a problem that has been fixed already in version 1.02
of the e2fs package.
