Re: Ftpd annoyance - DIR doesn't work for anonymous ftp

This is probably the most frequently asked question over on the
wu-ftpd list :-)

Easy way: compile ls from sources, but use gcc -static at the end so
it doesn't need shared libs. Works on all systems.

Hard way: update a *lot* more of lib, you need ld.so and/or
ld-linux.so, and you need to run ldconfig on that copy of lib (see the
ldconfig man page for details.) The specific details vary a lot from
system to system. (There's something to be said for having the debian
ftpd package either handle this or include a script to do so... even
if it means "dpkg --root ~ftp -i base*.deb" :-)
