I just had some problems with my desktop(bad update) and ended up
reinstalling linux on my HD. In the process, I left my home directory
unformatted, so after the install I actually hadn't lost anything - all
my data was there.
However, now when I issue the command "ls -a" in my home directory, the
command just sits there. I actually have to close the terminal window,
ctrl-C does nothing.
'ls' works fine in my home directory. And 'ls -a' works fine in other
directories other than my home directory. So it's just the 'a'
attribute, and just in my home directory.
Any grand ideas what I should do other than get used to not using -a?
