Thread: Can a mount point address a folder?

  1. #1

    Can a mount point address a folder?

    In MS-DOS you can define a drive letter to address a specific directory.
    This helps avoid extra typing and typos.
    Can this be done in Linux with a mount point?

    yes, mount -o bind oldir newdir
    will do the trick
    I'd say you should just create a symlink though:
    ln -s oldir newdir
    63,000 bugs in the code, 63,000 bugs,
    ya get 1 whacked with a service pack,
    now there's 63,005 bugs in the code!!

  3. #3
    symlink is the best way to go
