Moving /var/adm and /var/lib - why does it hurt?
My var partition had proven to be too small on my SuSE 9.1 system, and so I copied /var/adm and /var/lib to an other partition and symlinked them to their original place. (All these done without exiting X11)
My rpm database got corrupted immediately: all entries disappeared. I copied those directories back, and could recover the rpmdb from a backup, but I still have a problem: special keys like ALTGR do not work ever since.
I wonder why my system got hurt by moving those directories, and how I can make ALTGR work again?
Can anyone help me with a hint?
