libnoxattr

An LD_PRELOAD library that disables all forms of extended file attributes. This is useful to simulate a file system that does not support extended attributes on a file system that supports them, e.g., ext4.

Usage

Build via make then run via:

LD_PRELOAD="/full/path/to/libnoxattr.so" $YOUR_PROGRAM
