Today we will learn that what files are located under /usr/local. These files are safe from being overwritten by software updates. It may be used to install your programs and software. In other words, /usr/local contains the files which are not related to the operating system.
The following directories, or symbolic links to directories, must be in /usr/local
|etc||Host-specific system configuration for local binaries|
|games||Local game binaries|
|include||Local C header files|
|man||Local online manuals|
|sbin||Local system binaries|
|share||Local architecture-independent hierarchy|
|src||Local source code|
No other directories, except those listed below, may be in /usr/local after first installing a FHS-compliant system.
So I hope you know what is /usr/local folder is meant for and what files are located under /usr/local. If you have information on this, keep the comments coming.
