10.5: A fix for hidden Unix files showing in file system root
Authored by: ppp on Nov 20, '07 01:12:18PM

I have the folders "~", "dev", "net", and "home" on my Leopard Server installation.

The sudo chflags hidden /~ worked, but I get a Permission denied error, even su root, for the other items.

If I Get Info on any of these items (sym links to their /private/ location), they disappear, only to reappear the next time I click on the boot volume in the Finder.
