Any ideas where all the files from /bin /sbin /lib and
/lib64 will be
moved to? seems quite a dramatic change ... I always thought that seemed
like quite logical layout. I can see many a broken shell script in
The distinction between executables for the root user and other mere
mortals has become blurred over time and apparently, one can no longer
really boot up with an empty /usr. More information here:
In the referenced article "What's new in Fedora 17"
), there is the following information on
what's happening to the obsolete directories:
"In Fedora 17, all of the files which were previously located in these
directories are now in similarly named sub-directories of /usr/. To
ensure backwards compatibility, the deleted directories have been
replaced with symbolic links that point to the new directories."
Shouldn't break any scripts therefore.
