Description Thomas Moschny 2000-01-20 06:02:53 EST
This is a problem that has been discussed earlier (see bug 230).
According to the FSSTND, it should be possible to mount /usr read-only.
There are several advantages of doing that. I expect to be able to
configure makewhatis to create /var/catman/.../index.* instead of
/usr/man/.../whatis.
(Please no discussion about the FSSTND.)
Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-10-04 07:13:42 EDT
It uses /var/cache/man in 7.0
