Re: HAMMER and file alternation problem
:I just installed KDE on a HAMMER file system, and I noticed
:an interesting thing. When I create a file in console on a HAMMER
:file system I need to refresh Konqueror file browser to
:see the newly created file. However if I create the
:file on a UFS file system Konqueror notices it nearly instantenously(no need
:to manual refresh).
:Is this a feature missing in the HAMMER file system or its because of KDE
:not having a clue about HAMMER? If its a feature missing in HAMMER,
:can we please add it?
We'd have to figure out how konqueror is detecting the new file.
Ktracing it might yield a clue.
HAMMER does adjust the modified timestamp on the directory when a
file is created or deleted within it, so it isn't that.
