Description Peter Åstrand cendio 2003-11-20 14:39:18 CET
According to FHS, host-specific configuration files for /opt packages should be
placed under /etc. Most files in thinlinc/etc/conf.d are not host-specific, but
vsmagent.hconf is. So, it should probably be placed in /etc/opt/thinlinc instead.
Comment 1 Peter Åstrand cendio 2003-11-20 14:41:24 CET
Note, however, that FHS says:

"Generally, all data required to support a package on a system must be present
within /opt/<package>, including files intended to be copied into
/etc/opt/<package> and /var/opt/<package> as well as
reserved directories in /opt."
Comment 2 Peter Åstrand cendio 2007-03-06 10:25:23 CET
We need to verify if this policy still holds for LSB. 
Comment 3 Pierre Ossman cendio 2011-10-13 15:05:17 CEST
We have /var/lib/vsm as well. Maybe this also should move to /var/opt somewhere?

It does. LSB refers to FHS, and I cannot find any additional information about this.
