This question already has an answer here:
All filenames mentioned here are directories.
The permissions of
drwxr--r--). The permissions of
drwxr-xr-x). I do not own these directories in anyway.
Why can I
ls /media/disk, but can't
ls /media/disk/directory? My guess is that
ls needs run access to
/media/disk, but this would be stupid because if I have read access to a file (i.e. if
r is set), then I should be able to read the file.
In addition to the question above, if I'm correct in saying that the issue is due to lack of run access, I want to ask why what I said is stupid, isn't.

I don't think the proposed duplicate explains why this feature isn't stupid.
