ls -la Segmentation Fault
 
Here's the situation:
I want to list the contents of a directory full of shared libraries.
When I type 'ls -la' I either get:
Code:

[root@host lib]# ls -la
Segmentation fault

or
Code:

[root@host lib]# ls -la
ls: error while loading shared libraries: ./libtermcap.so.2: ELF file data encoding not little-endian

What's wrong with it? The shared libraries are for a PowerPCa and my host is x86...
And the libtermcamp.so.2 file is somewhere at the end of the listing (I checked it with Konqueror). There ~60 shared llibraries in that directory...
Does the 'ls' command tries to load the libraries???

Thanks.

You mave hav LD_LIBRARY_PATH="." set.

Instead of trying to list the contents of the directory from within the directory, list the contents of 'lib' from lib's parent:

Code:

[root@host lib]# cd ..
[root@host whatever] ls -la ./lib/

Yes, that works. But I found the cause of it - I'd put a lot of aliases in my .zshrc file, and some of them overlap the names of existing commands (like pp, the perl packager and cc...)
No comments, me master n00b... :jawa:
