Setting up a test system for the usb/uvcvideo tests, I have found another kernel 3.13 issue – this time with Linux as a VMware guest..
The shared folders – which work OK with 3.12, do not work with 3.13.
Normally shared folders are found under /mnt/hgfs, but with 3.13 the hgfs directory is corrupted in some odd way, so that it is shown as ‘not a directory’ if a listing is attempted:
$ ls /mnt hgfs $ ls /mnt/hgfs/ ls: cannot open directory /mnt/hgfs/: Not a directory
With kernel 3.12.8, the shared directories are shown correctly:
$ ls /mnt/hgfs/ data8 rgadsdon
Once again, further research is needed, but – so far – there does not appear to be a patch for this particular problem..
