Subject1.3.88, nfs mounted /usr/src/linux, diff incoherent

bash$ diff /vmlinuz.1388 /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/zImage
Binary files /vmlinuz.1388 and /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/zImage differ
bash$ diff /vmlinuz.1388 /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/zImage
Binary files /vmlinuz.1388 and /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/zImage differ
bash$ ls -l /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/zImage
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 461728 Apr 13 19:42 /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/zImage
bash$ ls -l /vmlinuz.1388
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 461728 Apr 14 00:07 /vmlinuz.1388
bash$ diff /vmlinuz.1388 /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/zImage
bash$


I can go on with this exercise. Sometimes they differ, sometimes not.

The /usr/src/ is nfs mounted, symbolically linked:

bash$ ls -l /usr/src
total 7
-rw-r--r-- 1 root adm 1191 Aug 16 1995 gdbm-1.7.3-ELF-diff.gz
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 1024 May 2 1995 ghostscript-2.6.2
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 1024 Jun 10 1994 lilo
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 20 Feb 22 18:21 linux ->
/usr/local/src/linux
NFS link:


/dev/sda1 298365 206780 76175 73% /usr/local/cdrom
eagle:/usr/local/src 776017 230599 505329 31% /usr/local/src


On this machine, the links comes from:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 Feb 20 17:36 src -> /usr/local/cdimage/src
bash# pwd
/usr/local
bash#

It makes me uneasy, that sometimes the files differ, and sometimes not..


Regards,

Johan
