Welcome to Icon Disti GhostBSD.png /usr/.
Directory Description
/usr/bin/ Common utilities, programming tools, and applications.
/usr/home/user/ Home directory of an user
/usr/include/ Standard C include files.
/usr/jails/ Jails build upon the chroot(2) concept, which is used to change the root directory of a set of processes. This creates a safe environment, separate from the rest of the system. Processes created in the chrooted environment can not access files or resources outside of it. For that reason, compromising a service running in a chrooted environment should not allow the attacker to compromise the entire system. However, a chroot has several limitations. It is suited to easy tasks which do not require much flexibility or complex, advanced features. Over time, many ways have been found to escape from a chrooted environment, making it a less than ideal solution for securing services.
/usr/lib/ Archive libraries
/usr/lib32/ lib32 contains 32-bit libraries, which are required to run any i386-targeted binary, such as wine
/usr/libdata/ Miscellaneous utility data files.
/usr/libexec/ System daemons and system utilities executed by other programs.
/usr/local Local executables and libraries. Also used as the default destination for the FreeBSD ports framework. Within /usr/local, the general layout sketched out by hier(7) for /usr should be used. Exceptions are the man directory, which is directly under /usr/local rather than under /usr/local/share, and the ports documentation is in share/doc/port.
/usr/obj/ Architecture-specific target tree produced by building the /usr/src tree.
/usr/ports/ The GhostBSD Ports Collection (optional).
/usr/sbin/ System daemons and system utilities executed by users.
/usr/share/ Architecture-independent files.
/usr/src/ BSD and/or local source files.
