The Missing Link
Posted on 2011-09-12
I have two directories named /sunquest/bin and /usr/local/bin that are, apparently, linked. When I compare their content, it is identical. The problem is that I can't figure out how they're linked. I haven't found a soft link, and information I've found elsewhere claims that hard links to directories cannot be created. Regardless, this is what the ls command is showing me...
# ls -lid /usr/local/bin
32 drwxr-xr-x 10 root system 8192 Aug 15 12:13 /usr/local/bin
# ls -lid /sunquest/bin
32 drwxr-xr-x 10 root system 8192 Aug 15 12:13 /sunquest/bin
...but when I run find like this...
find / -inum 32
... the /sunquest/bin directory shows up but /usr/local/bin does not.
