I am wondering where I should install software at. Taking look at the the Fllesystem Hierarchy Standard site (http://pathname.com
), it has the following definitions:
/usr/local - for use by the system administrator when installing software locally.
/opt - reserved for the installation of add-on application software packages.
They both seem to say the samething, or are they?
Should I maybe put system type software (i.e. java runtime. mysql, etc.) into /usr/local and user specific software (open office, mp3 players, etc.) into /opt?
Let me know what you guys/girls think.
