I have a partition of common data, meant to be shared by multiple Linux
installations. The directories and files in that hierarchy have root
specified as owner/group, but read permission is granted to all. I set
up in my Ubuntu 6.06 user directory a link pointing to that common
partition. However, Ubuntu 6.06, while logged in as user shows the
subdirectories of that link as unknown documents with
owner,group,permissions, etc. all labeled as "Unknown". Those same dirs
and files display properly when logged in as root.
Why does the Ubuntu 6.06 file manager obfuscate those file attributes,
blocking access to subdirectories and files for everyone but root?
