You usually put usr_devx.sfs in the same folder as usr_cram.fs

Then it should be mounted automatically.

Type "cc" for a test.
if it answers "command not found", usr_devx.sfs was not mounted.
If it sais something about "no input files", all is ok.

To compile, extract a "source"-.tgz from a homepage of a program.

Extract it.
run
./configure
make
make install

in the folder where it was extracted.
Some programs need options like
./configure --disable xxyyzz

Type
./configure --help
for details, and read the often included files "README" and "INSTALL".

These are generic instructions, some programs work different, see supplied documentation then.

If using an HDD install then either:

(1) copy usr_devx.sfs to / & reboot

(2) mount usr_devx.sfs as a loop device & copy contents into /usr

I think I documented that on the updated web pages.

You place it at "/", then reboot.

You can check that usr_devx.sfs is loaded:

# df

you should see a line with /dev/loop3 and /.usr_devx

This is a bump. As we are the featured distro of the week, and also mentioned
in TUX magazine. So we are sure to have plenty of traffic & questions.
