Maximum number of folders in slackware


Hey all,

I am just wondering what the maximum number of folders are in slack as I am trying to make new folders through samba on a Xp machine but it says access denied but all the permissions are set properly and nothing has changed to make an error like this occur. I have about 30000 folders andI try to make a new folder and it just won't work.

Thanks

I think that would be limited by the filesystem and not by Slackware.

This may answer it: http://www.kerneltraffic.org/kernel-...514_118.html#4

You should if possible, use several subdirectories, for example, split them inside directories with the beggining letter, like all subdirs that start with a, put them under a/, b in b/, etc. That would also improve speed when reading the directory list.
