[opensuse] find error in SuSE 9.2- dot changed during execution
Ok, from the REALLY BASIC QUESTION department, why does find fail with "find . changed during execution of find" when I search from the root? This is a Suse 9.2 installation on a PIII with 640mb of RAM. Really. It boots from a small IDE drive where most of Linux is but there's also two different raid arrays attached, one SATA on a 3Ware card, one SCSI.


# find / -name smb.conf
[finds some files and reports them
find: . changed during execution of find


Often I get no results from the find before it returns that error, although this example does return 4 results. What should I be doing instead?

before. --F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940)
