Gobolinux uses stuff like /Programs/NameOfApplication/VersionNumber
and so on.
It symlinks these files into /System/Links... somewhere there.
For several reasons, it is keeping /usr and so on as real links.
They said if they wouldnt do so, things would break.
My question is - which things would really break, and what are
the most important applications that would break (i.e. takes a
lot of time to fix) if you use a LFS system that uses ANY other
way to keep applications.
Thats my question #1.
Now to question number #2, it is a bit similar too
Lets consider a theoretical, chaotic system.
We are using a script that totally automates installation. It looks
at a rule set to know what it shall install, in which
order and so on. However since it is also a bit chaotic, it
wants to make chaos. Thus it will use the --prefix= notation
and totally use arbitrary directory names.
For example, it would install aterm under
it would install glibc under
it would install zsh under
And so on.
You see, this is ugly. But I want to know if it is feasible.
I want to know which other options exist.
A more "self aware" system... well if anyone wants to say something,
please do so
