[CentOS] 6.5 minimal kickstart bug?view story

http://centos.1050465.n5.nabble.com – I am new to kickstart file, but my understanding of the process is that I am supposed to be able to take the anaconda-ks-cfg file from the /root directory, copy it to an accessible location, and point the install disk to it, and it should reproduce the install I did originally. I used the 6.5 minimal install ISO, copied and renamed the ks.cfg. (HowTos)

'total 0' in ls outputview story

http://www.unix.com – I have a Linux box, where some NAS shares are mounted. One script is running on it and failing because it first looks at second line of 'ls -l', when it says 'total 0', it fails. If that directory is on local disk, it says 'total 38' and when same data is on NAS share, it says 'total 0' and it fails that script to run. Is this something which can be changed ? (HowTos)
