Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 141396
keep /usr/local an empty directory and not install anything there
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:15 EST
Description of problem:
/usr/local is commonly used for locally built software and for NFS mounts. It
would be better if /usr/local on RedHat and Fedora systems was just an empty
directory. I even think that some packages supplied by RedHat actually try to
install things there but I do not remember what.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I don't think that we do install _anything_ into /usr/local. If you find something, then please submit a
bug against the specific package which does this. I'm closing this as NOTABUG because I don't beleive
that there's anything which currently does this.
