/usr/local folder contents accidently deleted
Hello I accidently deleted contents of my /usr/local directory. I wonder is there any way to recover/install it? If so, can someone tell me how? I did not install any new programs in that path.

And I wonder what was in that path.

I 'm running RH 9.0

By default, /usr/local contains the same directories as /usr (more or less).
That's it, only directories, no files. /usr/local is simply a location where you install your software or non-RPMs binaries.

If you didn't download and install new non-RPM software, there is nothing in that directory to worry about.
(Unless RedHat 9 installs something in /usr/local that I don't know about - My guess is NO).

If you want to recover deleted files, you should take a look at the Linux Ext2fs Undeletion mini-HOWTO

There are also other Similar Threads concerning recovery of deleted files.
Do a search in the forums for "Undelete".
