Pick one of: /var/run or /run, make that the default.
scons varrun=/XX to change to the other one.
Which s/b the default?
For me, I would make /run the default. But I have no idea what
non-Debian systems do. RPi? xBSD? Redhat and derivatives?
The real question is: Is there anything but Debian that has adopted
/run? I view this as a Debian oddity, not the normal case.
Gentoo Linux has /var/run symlink’d to /run. Has been this way for a while I think (since 2015 when /run was added?). I think /run is the preferred, and the link is for compatibility.
Looks like Arch Linux is doing the same thing (found this while looking for the Gentoo history):
And it looks like it dates back to 2011 and was caused/changed for systemd/udev (part of systemd):
So most/all OS’s that support systemd have /run configured this way? (I use Gentoo w/o systemd).
