Too many levels of symbolic links

Post#1 by YonZeroYon » 26 Mar 2017, 13:07

I found this weird issue when troubleshooting a bug caused by myself, maybe this only happened in my desktop, I would suggest you issue this command, make sure you save everything first

I use the following command as suggested by Google to diagnose my issue,
I am using Porteus 3.2.2 x64 right now on native hardware, same result observed in native hardware and inside VirtualBox,

Code: Select all

cd /
find -L ./ -mindepth 15
and the screen will loops non-stop ./mnt/live/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:00.0/subsyste ... in fact, if you change the mindepth to 100 or more, the loop will just run non-stop.

Last time that diagnostic message appeared was when I ended up with a circular definition. ;)
