Mutter. Thanks for the fast response.
It'd be nice if it had some sort of *warning* if it isn't safe, I certainly found a lot of sites suggesting that particular modification (removing /usr as an inherited dir). I'm building zones that run apache servers (mostly, coolstack) and the web folks have all sorts of stuff that wants to write into /usr, not /usr/local, at least out of the can. And there didn't seem to be any particular reason NOT to do this, so we've been up and running for over a year in this configuration. Oh well, at least I've gotten pretty good at rebuilding apache zones quick from scratch...I'll give the detached upgrade a whirl but if it doesn't work I'll rebuild as whole root. I'm feeling kinda crabby about this because I usually try so very hard to stay with vanilla, standard, supported configurations, everything in its place in case I get hit by a bus. Removing /usr from the set just didn't feel like it was going to be a big problem... thanks again Betsy _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list email@example.com
