Subject: [gentoo-dev] little filesystem layout idea

1 What about the following:
2 instead of heaving /usr/X/Y, /usr/X/Y is a symlink to /usr/Y/X.
3 so /usr/qt/3/bin whould be a symlink to /usr/bin/qt/3.
4 the advantage? all binaries/libraries/headers/... are under a common
5 subdirectory (/usr/bin,/usr/lib,/usr/include) and not spread in /usr.
6 This could be usable in network environments where
7 /usr/bin,/usr/share,... are mounted as NFS export. (and it's closer to
8 the FHS....).
10 bye Thomas
12 PS: sorry for bad english
13 PPS: i don't want another filesystem layout flame thread,it's just an
14 idea....
