Reply To: Bug report – file scanner

I’m running svn-1274 on a Suse-10 linux box:
Linux 2.6.13-15.10-default #1 Fri May 12 16:27:12 UTC 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

I’m using an sqlite-3 DB.

Config flags:
–enable-sqlite3 –enable-mdns –enable-oggvorbis –enable-flac –enable-static –enable-shared –sysconfdir=/etc

Ok, now the problem:
The file scanner skips a directory called “…they all look the same to me”. I guess it’s probably because the directory name starts with “.”. I think it should be a bug… When I rename the directory with “_” instead of “.”, the files inside get scanned with no problems.

I can provide any debug logs that may be required. Sorry it’s not the latest SVN, but I couldn’t find a mention of this anywhere so I assume the latest nightlies will exhibit the same behaviour… I apologise in advance if this has been fixed.


Check your web config — it’s an advanced option called “Ignore Dotfiles”. You’ll want to set it to “no”.
