I have read
man hier (
info hier in fact). But it seems a bit old(Correct me if I am wrong). There are many directories, which are not mentioned in the manual.
/sys /selinux /lost+found
I have seen these on
CentOs5 versions. Also I am not sure about the difference between
/mnt, though my guess is
/mnt can be used for mounting any filesystem, and
/media is meant to be used as mount points as only for (removable) media. Though I am not convinced that this difference is enough for
/media deserving a separate directory, rather than being a special case for
/mnt. What am I missing here? So can someone shed some light on these(above) directories in the filesystems (especially in terms of their intended usage & practical usage, any tricks & and advantages for having them.)?
Note: I have read similar questions but haven't found anything related to above directories.
