Moving files in %posttrans to a different location seems like one heck of
a hack. What problem are we trying to solve here with a "self-contained
installation in /usr"?
== Red Hat
"heck of a hack"??
We do a lot more for the kernel in postrans:
- create the initrd and move it to /boot
- modify the bootloader conf (grubby)
I don't see why additionally copying some files make it a "heck of a hack"?
With "self-contained installation in /usr" we want to minimize the location
of distributed files, so we can have:
- stateless systems with a shared /usr gold master
- easy distribution of vendor supplied OS parts
- factory reset
In our model:
- /usr is vendor supplied
- /var is OS state
- /etc is admin config
- /boot is machine owned and sometimes even shared with other OS (EFI partition
