OK, system recovery in case /usr explodes, makes kindof sense.
Did a filesystem ever "explode" on me? Hm... cannot remember such a case.
Perhaps I should use more ReiserFS partitions;-)
I've had a hdd dying. That destroyed /, /usr and most notably /home.
No separation helping there (no second disk in a Portege laptop...).
I'm really not used to partitions or filesystems exploding.
Maybe I'm too lucky and use too stable kernels, or have too friendly
But thanks for clearing that up... though for recovery I nowadays think of
(network booted) initramfs with busybox or just a live CD if I'm lucky
enough to have a CD drive in the box.
Anyhow, prepare to move iwconfig to /sbin once we get used to shiny
subnotebooks that only have wireless lan and no optical drives... just
seems fair to me.
