I am trying to understand why running the command sh /enhancements/var-symlinks.sh breaks the installs I am trying to protect. I followed these instructions from DDB /forum/showthread.php?t=53236 which are needed to make NCID work on a S2.5/S3 unit. The application ncid-0.68.tar.gz installs in the /var/hack directory. I then went on to install other aplications then ran this command to update my symlinks then NCID stopped working... How does this command work? Does it only look one way and lync applications from the /enhancements/varhcaks to the /var/hack directory or does it look both ways? I also had a problem with installing mfs_ftp. I installed the application in the /enhancements/varhacks directory. I could not get it to run unless I put the drive in RW because it could not write to the cache folder. It would not let me change it back to RO while mfs_ftp was running. To get it to run in RO I had to create the cache folder in /var/mfs_ftp/cache and ran these command to lync it back to the /enhancements/varhacks/mfs_ftp/cache with command(s) ln -sf /var/mfs_ftp/cache /enhancements/varhacks/mfs_ftp/cache ln -sf /var/mfs_ftp/port.3105.log /enhancements/varhacks/mfs_ftp/port.3105.log In other words, I am linking from var to enhancements instead of enhancements to var. I then went to rock up the machine so I ran sh /enhancements/var-symlinks.sh and now neither NDIC or mfs_ftp works. I am puzzuled trying to figure out how this command works. Should I just not run this command and build all the symlinks manually?
