What is the function of the archived flag? I am running FreeBSD 4.9 with kern.securelevel = -1. I am using vnconfig with a msdos diskimage to mount it using the command: mount -t msdos /dev/vn0c /usr/wine/disk After I mount it I notice that the /usr/wine/disk directory and all files and directories below it posess the flag attribute: "arch" when I list them using "ls -lo". Try as I might, I cannot remove that flag even as root and even in single user mode. The command I am using is: chflags -R noarch /usr/wine/disk What is the use of this flag? I find no explanation of the flag in the man pages. I am getting strange behavior with the application that I am running and I suspect this "arch = archived" flag may be the cause; I would like to understand the meaning and use of the archived flag.
