I see. The fact that /usr isn't available after booting in maintenance mode (SUM) is often important for recovery purposes. The OS leaves it to the admin to take such important decisions. :-) > > The good thing about vi - yes, there is such a thing - is the > > fact that it even works completely under the weirdest > > circumstances, e. g. if you are on a terminal line that does > > not have cursor keys or function keys, then you can still > > use the full power of vi, as long as you know how to master > > it, but that's true for anything in the UNIX world. > > > Aren't all - or at least most - of the Unix editors like this?
