I've just checked my efi directory, and /boot/efi is owned by 'root', as
are directories /boot/efi/EFI and /boot/efi/System and file
/boot/efi/mach_kernel. Drilling a little bit further directories
/boot/efi/EFI/BOOT and /boot/efi/EFI/fedora are also owned by root, as
is directory /boot/efi/System/Library, so I'm assuming everything is.
Sorry for not being more clear. I mean owned in the rpm way. If you do
"rpm -qf /path/to/file" it will tell you which package put the file (or
I'm not concerned so much by the space that structure is using,
just querying why it is there, and, if I happen to delete that structure
will that cause any problems, or, if I do delete it is something going
to put it back?
If you don't have an EFI system, then deleting those files shouldn't
make any difference. But I'm curious, since you actually have files in
there, can you check what package owns them as described above?
