lsattr is for listing *ext2/3/4* attributes.  it makes no sense on any other filesystem.

hey Mike, Thanks but when i tried to compile mtools for uClinux i get the the following wrror. Am not able to cross this obstacle!

 

 

 

This is what i tried

 

CC=bfin-linux-uclibc-gcc ./configure --host=bfin-linux-uclibc --prefix=/home/yathi/mtools-4.0.13/out

 

 

and i got this

 

checking whether setpgrp takes no argument... configure: error: cannot check setpgrp when cross compiling

 

 

 

Would be great if u can help me with this!

 

 

 

 

Thanks

 

Yathi
