this is quite an old threat, but i've justed stumbled over that problem
on my system. my partition where /opt/ resides is nearly full and i
would like to move it to another partition.
unfortunatly, when i cp it over i get the same problems with the 32
link. in addition to that, a du -sh /opt says it's about 5gb. when i
copy it to the new partition (cp -R or cp -R -p), the new partition will
run out of space after a while. thing is, it's a 10gb partition....
it looks as if the system tries to copy the same files again and again
and again, but alway on directory deeper than the last on
/opt/csw/lib/32/32/32/32/32/32/ and so on. there seems to be some sort
of loop.
any ideas?
