Filesystem Layout

Fedora follows the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard with regards to filesystem layout, with exceptions noted below. The FHS defines where files should be placed on the system.


  • Fedora allows cross-compilers to place files in /usr/target.
  • Fedora does not allow new directories directly under / or /usr without FPC approval.
