As Truls pointed out, this link already existed in BeOS (to /boot/beos/system/), so there might be software that actually relies on it. I guess that's an acceptable risk, though; the switch from /boot/beos/ to /boot/system caused only minor fallout). > What's the meaning of B_COMMON_SYSTEM_DIRECTORY? According to the BeBook: "The shared system directory." To me this sounds like a copy&paste error, though :-) Bye, Axel.
