Question Fedora 28 Default Installation puts /root/bin in default path but this directory does not exist

I installed several Fedora 28 servers on VMWare 14 and discovered that the Easy Install puts /root/bin in the default path for the root user, but /root/bin is not created by the install. This is not true for other accounts, /home/%user%/bin is present for other users created during the install, and included in their default path. Is that by design, or an error in the install script.

Might be an install error.

Maybe you're expected to make /root/bin yourself. I don't know.
If it was me I'd
sudo mkdir /root/bin
and move on. Or whatever fedora uses for sudo.


install, root folder
