Ok, so im still a newbie.
But I still dont understand the Linux/Unix file system.
what is /proc for?
Ive kinda figured out that /etc is for configuration files....but why the hell did they call it "etc"?:confused:
anyway, if some1 could point me to a document where it explains the filesystem, id be less of a newbie :) hehe, im on my way to becoming a non-newbie.
proc is for processes. so you can get at the os's
goings on. they're not really files in there. just links
ahh, hence the name proc :) hehe
thanx for your reply.
still wondering what the rest of them mean? /home is obvious, and so is /root
You can learn a lot of what's going on by cat'ing or less'ing a lot of stuff in proc - a couple of files will make your display go haywire *g* but a lot of it's great stuff.
etc=dumb term that should have been cfg. *g*
Stuff like that.
thanx for youre help guys.
Soon ill classify myself as a non-newbie
