For many years I've been running successive versions of openSUSE with
a /usr partition separate from the root partition /. But I see that
the Fedora manuals insist that the practice of separating these two
filesystems can lead to dire results. I note, too, that there was a
problem with this in the early drops oS 12.2

Is there a problem here, or a potential problem, in openSUSE? Or can
I continue to separate these two filesystems with confidence?

WE have put measures into place so that you can continue to use /usr as
a separate partition.

On the other hand, going forward I suggest to not setup a separate /usr
anymore, there's no benefit in it.


Thank you. That's all I needed to know.
