I have installed Mandriva and now get the following message when I do a "find". What does it mean? It doesn't seem to cause any problems, but I'd like to solve it. This didn't happen with the mandrake 10.1 I had previously, (I did a full install, not an upgrade).

Thanks
Simon

It appears to be a kernel bug and patches have been submitted. However, the error message may still occur due to the dynamic nature of the /proc filesystem.
In any event, it's not critical if that's what you are worried about.

Must be you 1sf (troll), my Mandriva hasn't crashed after any updates. I don't think it's just because I have the club edition Razz
