Re: Debian+umsdos (fwd)

Juhana K Kouhia:
   umsdos with windows '95 filesystem might be a problem...  With
   linux's msdos-fs I were not able to delete a directory; only got
   'directory is not empty'-message even the directory were empty.

Are you sure this is because of w95?

You can also get a directory into this state using a vanilla dos file
system.  Umsdos has some race conditions in it that can fail to remove
some of the guts of links -- these will prevent the directory from
being removed until the directory has been cleaned up (e.g. mount it
as an msdos file system, then use rm -rf).
