I am running into the following Linux error:
Too many levels of symbolic links.
This seems to be caused by the system limit of 8 maximum link-chain size, and I'm looking for a way to increase this limit.
I am writing a system which makes use of symlinks to pass on file resources between working elements. This results in long chains of symlinks (e.g.
a->b->c->d->e...->z). I am creating a chain intentionally, as I'm interested in preserving this structure of who-provided what. It should be noted that this system is physically disconnected from the outside world, so I have practically no concerns for security or exploit prevention.
All help would be greatly appreciated!
