DEB: DeepaMehta files and folders with Ubuntu/Debian

Reported by: JuergeN Owned by: jri
Priority: Major Milestone:
Component: DeepaMehta Standard Distribution Version: 4.0.4
Keywords: Cc: silke, dgf
Complexity: 3 Area:


Debian/Ubuntu? have a very strict style guide for their file system, saying that certain files should go into certain directories in the System V directory tree.

Most important: config files should be located in /etc (e.g. /etc/deepamehta), static application files should be under /usr and variable files like the database should be located under /var.

To fulfil these requirements, Silke has symlinked the directories to their adequat destinations, which can only be seen as a temporary solution.

For a more general solution I would suggest a meta-config file in the deepamehta directory in which one can configure the location (directory) of all other config files, e.g. the location of the database (and other DB specific settings) should be configurable in an extra file, too.

The default directory could still be the DeepaMehta directory, but I should be able to choose e.g. /etc/deepamehta for the location of the config files.

Figured out that all required changes can be done through the existing config files. So there is no need for any further changes for now. (see #121)
