Changes in KaarPux version 3.0.0¶
3.0.0 released on
MAJOR: KaarPux: Merge / and /usr¶
The main changes are:
- Install everything in the
/(root) file system
/usra link to
/(to satisfy historical dependencies)
/usron the same partition
- If you want split partions, mount
Linux has traditionally split files needed to boot a basic system
/ and files needed to boot the complete system into
However, the reasons for this split dates back to 1970 disks: see Understanding the bin, sbin, usr/bin , usr/sbin split
With todays disks - and initramfs - the distinction does not make much sense.
In fact, trying to stay compliant with the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard is a real pain when installing a Linux distro.
The reasons for the
/sbin split are similar,
so we install all binaries into
and just symlink
/bin (to satisfy historical dependencies).
