I came across a very strange error here.. I downloaded
freeciv-client-1.9.0-3.i386.rpm from http://www.freeciv.org/download.phtml
# rpm -i ./freeciv-client-1.9.0-3.i386.rpm gives this error
failed to stat /net: Connection refused
I never saw a /net before so I try
# ls -la /
and sure enough it doesn't show up
# ls /
lists it with all the other /* files
adding any parameters to ls drops /net from the list!
# ls /net/ gives this error
ls: /net: Connection refused
has anyone ever come across this before or have any idea what its for?
I remember someone suggesting a filesystem extension that would
transparently add ftp to the filesystem. ie you could
# cp /ftp/ftp.somesite.org/somefile.tgz ~/downloads
it might just be a bug in the rpm.
ps redhat 6.0 kernel 2.2.10
