vzctl is unable to handle symlink files for config file in certain case ( cross-device )

I've made a patch which handle this.

Looks good, but can we use canonicalize_file_name(3) for that?

Comment 3 xavier martin 2009-05-19 10:00:46 EDT
indeed, it works as expected
Comment 4 Kir Kolyshkin 2009-05-20 07:21:56 EDT
1. you need to free() the result of canonicalize_file_name()
2. the proper way to #define _GNU_SOURCE is:

#ifndef _GNU_SOURCE
#define _GNU_SOURCE
Comment 5 Kir Kolyshkin 2009-10-16 10:10:00 EDT
Fixed in GIT:

Plus an improvement related to this bugreport:

Will be available in vzctl >= 3.0.24.
