Answers for "debian bin folder symlink to usr/bin"


debian bin folder symlink to usr/bin

Historically the utilities in the /bin and /sbin directories were used to mount the usr partition. This job is nowadays done by initramfs, and splitting the directories therefore no longer serves any purpose. The simplified file system hierarchy means, for instance, that distributions no longer need to fix paths to binaries (as they're now all in /usr/bin).
