lost part of my "/usr/local"-filesystem - debian(woody)
Date: Thu, 14 Aug 2003 14:22:50 +0200
I inadvertently deleted part of my "/usr/local"-filesystem doing a "rm
-r /usr/local". Although I stopped the command immediately when I
noticed my fault, I lost about 90 Mb of the filesystem. Among others
were the directoies:
bin, games, include, lib, lost+found, man, sbin, share
My system is running, but I worry about the loss of the
"lost+found"-directory. Is this critical? And if so, is there a way to
repair it? Unfortunately I haven't made a backup yet, so I cannot
restore things from a backup-medium.
Considering the other lost directories, I think that is not so harmful
and I can refill them occasionally whenever an application is missing
a needed file. But perhaps somebodey can tell me which applcations put
their files by default in one of the above mentioned directories.
Thank you in advance
