I have noticed that KDE is releasing two version of the RedHat
rpm's for KDE 1.1.2... an "oldstyle" version, and a
"FHS-compliant" version. I vaguely know a bit about the
Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (isn't that some list of standards
that most distribution makers pay lip service to, but basically
ignore?)... but have a couple questions about how it applies
- Am I correct in assuming that the "oldstyle" KDE rpm's install
into the "/opt" directory, while the "FHS" ones are the new ones
RedHat ships that go under "/usr" somewhere?
- If so, is KDE trying to shift towards installing under "/usr"
in the future? To phrase it a different way, would I be best off
just switching over to the FHS version in order avoid the hassle
of being an "odd man out" down the road?
- Last but not least, is there any semi-convient way to switch
your KDE installation from being under "/opt" to "/usr"... or do
you just have to bite the bullet, un-install your old KDE, and
re-install with the different rpm's?
