File System (theory and practice)
I am trying to understand something.
The Linux file system - mind you the XP file system is equally esoteric.
This is what the Puppy seems like to me (and I appreciate it is not typical of Linux but shares most elements):
In Puppy we can read from anything
but only write to files in /usr and /root
When you open rox some attempt of
etc allows some familiarity
but let us say I want to find a program
- it could be anywhere
icons too I find all over the place
Now (terrible person that I am) hearing why or how or what is the Linux file system is of no interest. What I would like to hear is stategies such as GOBO Linux introduced, or a central catalogue of all files and their locations . . . can that be implemented? Is it important?
Otherwise my head might explode (not a good thing)
I know Barry introduced some sort of new method of storing files (or did I imagine that) because the purging of alien files is now possible . . .
Any clarity welcome and hey - did you notice we have new dotpups for searching - plus that new gtkFind in 1.0.3 _________________ Puppy WIKI Last edited by Lobster on Tue 14 Jun 2005, 11:20; edited 1 time in total
