IFL tbiview won't 'see' any image files

Postby ManChicken » Thu Jun 02, 2016 10:20 pm

I have a .tbi of a previous Linux install and want to restore a bunch of junk from it to my current. I downloaded the Linux tbiview and finally got it to run, but when I go to Open and navigate to the folder the image file is in, nothing shows up. The file permissions are world-readable and I can access it as myself just fine, it's just tbiview that doesn't show anything. Even as root.

Any ideas why? I've tried renaming it to .TBI wondering if it was really looking for that based on the pattern at the bottom of the window, but that didn't do anything different.

That would probably be it, change the extension or type in a new one like
*.tbi or *.TBI or * to see all

Even changing it to * doesn't do anything. In fact it shows no files at all.. if I go into that 'linkedmedia' directory for instance shown in my screenshot, it just shows the parent directory .. even though it's full of various files.

Even if I type in the complete pathname to the TBI file exactly, I get "file not found" even though it's really there.

It can be 64bit inodes .. readdir fails. "noserverino" on network mounting
fixes that. And IFL see the files?

Thanks, that worked.
Indeed, the filesystem the TBI file is sitting on is a very large 12TB XFS volume.

Any plans for a native 64-bit build?
