lsof does not work correctly
« on: July 27, 2015, 04:07:27 pm »

When trying to use lsof it basically does nothing toward obtaining a list of files.
lsof +D /dir/dir   files in directory
Various attempts / switches to obtain file info from directories shows no result.
Ran slapt-get -u lsof and it seemed to update.
Same non-result.
Tried in / outside of root.

Any feedback is appreciated.

There was a bug in this build indeed.

Please download new package and test it if you can, running these commands as root:

Code: [Select]
# wget
# upgradepkg lsof-4.78-i586-2vl71.txz
