Well, his post are amusing. I read them what I want a good laugh. He
never lets little things like facts get in the way of what he
"knows". You can usually tell when he discovered that he was blaming
the wrong thing for his problems - he starts a new thread with the
same problem, but blaming something else. That way, he never has to
admit that he made a mistake.
The thing you have to remember is that Karl uses his own
definitions, instead of the generally accepted definitions of
things. In his mind the / or root directory is the base directory of
the partition, instead of the base directory of partition that gets
mounted as /. So in his mind, you can have as many / or root
directories as you have formatted partitions. (I am not sure how he
handles swap partitions, or virtual file systems like /dev and
/proc...) Anyone that does not understand "his" definitions, or
expects him to use the standard definitions, is stupid.
It will be interesting to see what form of personal attack he uses
to respond to this post. :-)
Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
