10.5: A fix for hidden Unix files showing in file system root
Authored by: ppp on Nov 20, '07 06:38:51PM

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.

I have tried this hint, and it didn't work. I was able to use Pacifist 2.5.1 to retrieve the script and Tool. The /home and /net directories are not in the script, and I get this error for /dev:

"/dev": FSPathMakeRefWithOptions returned -35
