The /usr/share directory contains architecture-independent shareable text files. The contents of this directory can be shared by all machines, regardless of hardware architecture.
In a mixed architecture environment, the typical diskless client mounts one server directory over its own /usr directory and then mounts a different directory over the /usr/share directory. The files below the /usr/share directory are contained in one or more separately installable packages. Thus, a node might have the other parts of the /usr directory it depends on locally installed while using a server to provide the /usr/share directory.
Some of the files in the /usr/share directory include the directories and files shown in the following diagram.
Figure 7-3. /usr/share Directory. . This diagram shows several directories under the /usr/share directory, including /info, /lib, /lpp, /dict, and /man.
directory includes the following:
|/usr/share/man||Contains the manual pages if they have been loaded|
|/usr/share/dict||Contains the spelling dictionary and its indexes|
|/usr/share/info||Contains the InfoExplorer database files|
|/usr/share/lib||Contains architecture-independent data files, including terminfo, learn, tmac, me, and macros|
|/usr/share/lpp||Contains data and information about optionally installable products on the system.|
