Hi Jan, et al,
Re: Use of /usr/share
- Is there a registry for names under /usr/share?
I would prefer having a known space that does
not conflict with others. (e.g. /usr/share/fwslc).
- Is it "ok" to have symlinks in the local instance
directory structure to said /usr/share area.
NOTE: All usage is "read-only".
- For an instance, there is a collection of "prototype"
configuration files. Is it "ok" to store these under
the /usr/share area, and copy them to the local
instance directory (thereby maintaining the "read-
only" nature of the items under /usr/share)?
I have a collection of scripts that have a version
id associated with it.
I allow updating infrastructure by simply changing
a symlink from one version of the infrastructure to
What I want to do is have all database instances
sharing the version of the scripts that is selected
for that instance.
That is, your db instance could be using a different
version of the infrastructure scripts than I am, but
there is only one copy of the scripts for any version.
If there are "overrides" to a script (local mods), then
selection of that modified script is handled by PATH
