Hello thanks for your answer. I think you are right, because I noticed on Arch Linux I can compile packages right away (no need to install -dev packages). Could you include one reference?

comment Changing the UID of files in /proc
excellent info about /proc. I didn't realize these were process IDs. So that means it is pointless to change the uid.

comment Why does “ls *” take so much longer than “ls”?
On the other hand, ls uses getdents64 and not (l)stat64 (as ls * is doing). getdents64 doesn't have a file name argument. On GPFL, ls -l uses another function called readlink, which may be faster than stat64. thanks a lot!

comment Why does “ls *” take so much longer than “ls”?
nice! You're right, I'm not seeing this difference on a local file system. Anyway, strace reveals that ls -l * is using lstat64 and getxattr, whereas ls * is just using stat64 and lstat64.
