I have a file system where one or more symlinks exist to a file. Is there a way to go thru each file and determine where all the symlinks that point to it on the file system are?
OS is Ubuntu 9.10 Linux
You can use good old
find / -lname '/path/to/linked/file' 2> /dev/null
For a more intricate approach, you can use the inode number of the file (retrieve from
find / -follow -inum 123456 2> /dev/null
