Subject: EDM dosn't handle file system links

Hello TechTalk,

can someone verify that EDM dosn't work very well with hard or
symbolic-links  under linux?

What I did:
created a file and reused it in different projects via link. One day I
edited not the source file rather the link and saved it with "save",
thus breaking the link.

original state:
~/file_lnk.edl ---> /lib/file.edl

1st save:
~/file_link.edl
~/file_lnk.edl~ ---> /lib/file.edl

2nd save:
~/file_link.edl
~/file_lnk.edl~

it seems to happen with softlinks as well as with symlinks. With
symlinks it's easier to investigate. Using hardlinks it helps using
"stat /lib/file.edl" to see if the file has links and "find / -samefile
/lib/file.edl" to see where are these pointing to.

thanks in advance
Fabian


PS works as well "find / -inum ?????"
