Another case of WONTFIX

A friend on another unrelated mailing list just posted this link:
Which tells me that having /usr on a separate partition, as most of us
oldtimers do that have been victims of LVM and had a system demolished by
its total lack of recovery tools does. I wouldn't touch LVM in any form
with anything less than old meat in the pot, a P.O.Ackley wildcat based on
That sample command line shown on that page, expanded with a |wc -l on the
end shows I am in violation 61 times!
Now, while I hate to do it, it looks like I may be forced to put /usr back
on / at my next install.
My present system gives a df output of:
[root at coyote sbin]# df
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda8 29G 7.2G 21G 27% /
/dev/sda1 395M 314M 62M 84% /boot
/dev/sda5 29G 18G 12G 62% /home
/dev/sda3 97G 12G 80G 13% /opt
/dev/sda6 29G 215M 28G 1% /root

/dev/sda7 29G 9.3G 19G 34% /var
/dev/sdc1 917G 478G 393G 55% /amandatapes
My question for this list is: Could this be the root cause of all my kde4
configuration losses at reboot time?
And, could the separate /home also have something to do with this, for the
The above is another non-negotiable item, just like /var which is separated
and will remain so as long as the logs are on it.
One possible fix might be to mount a 'log' partition at /var/log, but would
not the read-only status in case things go tits down in the deep end of the
pool, carry over and lock the system out of writing logs in this scenario?
That needs an authoritative answer, because I might just go so far as to
put it on a separate drive although that multiplies my failed drive
exposure to do so.
Inquiring minds want to know...
