Arrow /usr in a seperate drive


Hi,
When I installed Fedora I put /usr in a seperate drive. Does that mean that I cannot Install any programs in there and If I do they are not going to open up? Thanks

Navin

You are fine, don't worry about it. Linux does not treat drives like winblows. Drives are just part of the file tree. Everything appears as one huge tree, but you do have to still follow the constraints of the drive size.
