I'm pretty sure this worked in 10.5. One 10.6 i set kqueues to
watch a file. If I modify the resource fork or add or delete the
fork, the kqueue event doesn't fire and I don't get notified to
This is on a normal HFS+ volume, so it's not doing the ._ file
Anyone know if this was a change in 10.6? I don't remember getting
bug reports for my 10.5 builds.
You have it backwards.
I'm pretty sure this did not work in 10.5, except on UFS, and that
doesn't natively support resource forks.
In 10.6, we actually added support for a lot of FS-level kevents at
the VNOP_ KPI layer, which means that they'll apply to all filesystems
equally, but probably still not resource forks individually (part of
the removal of UFS support was to support these events for programs
that needed them on non-UFS FS types.
If you are getting errors now, it's probably because you asked for
events before that it was impossible for you to get except on UFS in
10.5, and now you are getting them for HFS+, and aren't reacting
correctly to them occurring. Generally, if something doesn't work,
you shouldn't be asking for it in old software, in case it starts
working in new software. I expect if you were to try this on 10.5 on
UFS, you'd see the same sort of things.
