Re: Red Hat is moving from / to /usr/

That depends. I have some systems where all file systems except /boot are encrypted. Since I don’t use Debian kernels and initramfs, I created a small one myself to ask for the /-partition password. Now I would have to put the whole LVM stuff into it, because /usr is on a LVM (/ is not).

So it is more complicated.

One more reason to get away from udev. :)

Yes, I think too, that udev sucks. Instead of merging / and /usr, udev should be enhanced to support runlevels (at least the difference between the early boot stage / single user and the multiuser mode). There is no need to configure the sound card mixer at the early boot stage, and so forcing the user to have /usr on the /-partition.

Shade and sweet water!
