searching and symlinks : stuck in a loop

using the search function (find files) , it gets stuck in an endless loop adding the path to the search path in an infinite loop, like the picture shows, notice the path at bottom of the window.

it never finishes the search.

Re: searching and symlinks : stuck in a loop

Please attach a full log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.

Thanks for the log.

I can see that in the i2c-0 folder, there's a device symlink to ../../mv64xxx_i2c.0. What is the mv64xxx_i2c.0? Is a symlink again? To i2c-0 or where?

looking in /sys/devices/platform/mv64xxx_i2c.0/i2c-0 i see what's in image i2c-0.png

and a symlink named "device" no "s" and that just points to ../../mv64xxx_i2c.0

aka /sys/devices/platform/mv64xxx_i2c.0 in absolute path. a parent folder.
