I'm on Fedora distro server and OSX on Mac as client connected via crossover cable using a local IP. Fedora is serving web pages and the Mac is browsing and connected via ssh on the terminal. I was working on a problem with the page content and writing a file to the server with vim when this started happening. Not a big deal, but its strange. I could see my files but not open them,
- The file was not open in another virtual term or on the mac, because I quit the file after creating it. Then problems started when I tried to reopen to add more log data.
- I wasn't typing anything special to open the file: # vi file_name-v1.
- no weird naming, just underscore and hyphen.
- I could see the file in the directory, but I couldn't open it.
So, what's going on? Why can I see this file but not open it. And here's where it gets strange. When I couldn't open the file on one machine, the other machine could open it.
What I've ended up with is four or five log files I've been opening up on one machine, adding some data, then when I couldn't open the same file to append, I had to create a new file. They're all in the same directory. Its just weird. Does SSH throw my files into the Bermuda Triangle or Neutral Zone or something?
UPDATE- HAHA! I'm (<-- idiot) staring at this. Why can't I get this. It was the frig'n underscore, hyphen swap! I write these files like two or three a day, and the one time I use underscores in a date! Just got to laugh!
