[hatari-devel] C: does not open if it contains a dangling symlink

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More lists.tuxfamily.org/hatari-devel Archives ]

Hi, I noticed this bug today.
I reproduced it on both Ubuntu and Cygwin.

Run Atari with GEMDOS drive emulation.
From outside, create a dangling symlink in the C: folder:
ln -s foo bar

Inside Hatari (TOS or EmuTOS), double-click on the C: drive. It doesn't open, even if there are valid files in the folder. So a single dangling symlink prevents the whole drive to be opened. This should not happen. It should just appear like an invalid file.

Standard output is:
/home/vincent/c/bar: No such file or directory
WARN : GEMDOS Fsnext(): Error setting DTA
