Description Marc MERLIN 2002-07-26 13:32:18 EDT
To be FHS compliant, you should either symlink the following files to /etc/mc,
or compile mc to look for them there:

/usr/lib/mc/mc.ext
/usr/lib/mc/mc.ini (not supplied by default, but looked up by mc)
/usr/lib/mc/mc.lib
/usr/lib/mc/mc.menu

I'd prefer to see this patch upstream than in RH.
Comment 2 Marc MERLIN 2002-07-27 21:00:28 EDT
I looked at the source, and what debian did.
It's apparently just a compile option issue:

debian's diff has:
