Default Filesystem

What does the green arrow mean on some of the folders?

There seems to be to many folders or occurences of /var/named/chroot in my filestystem. I will try to map these correctly below and hopefully someone can explain it to me or tell me how to fix it.

First I have this instance:

/root/chroot (chroot has green arrow) This directory should not exist should it?

then there is also:

/var/named/chroot (no green arrow on chroot)

from there I can click on chroot and follow this path

/chroot/var/named/chroot (green arrow on chroot)

from there I can click on chroot again and follow this path

/chroot/var/namedchroot (green arrow on chroot)

here is where the mystery for me is, I can continue doing this. It is like some constant loop. I kept following this "loop" clicking through each and ended up with over 70 open windows!

Somehow I don't think this is part of the chroot jail (but I could be wrong!). I think some how I just had a mojor operator error while loading BIND.

If it is the latter how can I remove all these extra directories leaving the main intact or would it be easier to back up the files in th main and remove them all then rebuild?

I think you're talking about symlinks. Symlinks aren't real files or directories, they just point to files or directories. And I guess that /chroot/var/named/chroot is just a symlink to /var/named/chroot because it's a chroot jail. Don't remove these symlinks, they are important. The loop you're in is nothing to worry about!

okay thanks, I had an idea the arrows had to do with the sys somehow. But I was totally unsure what the loop was about.
