On a fedora core 6 (linux kernal 2.6.18-1.2869.fc6) machine (Dell Dimension E521), using external hard drive (USB, West Digital My Book 500GB).
Do the following operation:
Mac WD_Windows_Tools autorun autorun.inf tmp
/media/MY_BOOK/tmp/>cp test test1
/media/MY_BOOK/tmp/>ln test test2
ln: creating hard link `test2' to `test': Operation not permitted
So it seems cp is fine, but ln has problem. I did those as su.
Is there any idea of how to create hard link on this external drive ? thanks!
