Ticket #12321 (closed defect: duplicate)
Shared Files Broken (directory listing)
|Reported by:||markpizz1||Owned by:|
I have several older Ubuntu versions (and several other Linux distros) installed in VMs and running fine on my Windows 7 system. These VMs were setup using older versions of VirtualBox over the past couple of years.
Yesterday, I created a new VM to install the latest Ubuntu 13.10 Desktop x64. The install went smoothly. Once it was installed I installed the VirtualBox Guest Additions and defined a shared folder the same way I did under the other VMs.
Now for the strange part.
From a terminal window:
I can "cd /media/sf_XXX/some/path" just fine.
I can "cat /media/sf_XXX/some/path/file" just fine.
If I try to "ls /media/sf_XXX/some/path" things just hang forever.
I repeated the install from scratch and got the same results.
I tried the same activities with Ubuntu 13.10 Desktop x86 and got the same results. Shared Folders for my older Ubuntu and other Linux distros continue to work as expected.
