Join Scott Simpson for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring the Linux file system, part of Up and Running with Fedora Linux.
- Fedora, along with many Unix-like systems,…follows a standard called…the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard or FHS,…which defines locations, permissions, and filenames…for system and other files.…This standard makes it possible for users and programs…to find what they're looking for in consistent places.…More information about this standard…is available at pathname.com/fhs.…For our purposes here, let's take a look at a few…of the commonly used directories and files.…I've generated this output with a command called tree,…which is handy for showing filesystem trees.…
Don't worry about it for now.…I just want you to pay attention…to the structure of the directories.…The most important directory,…and the one on which everything else is based,…is the root directory that's represented with a /.…It's the highest level in the hierarchy,…meaning that everything else is contained within it,…or is under it.…You've probably seen the slash representing root…in absolute file paths.…Under the root directory, there are a number of…

Q: Why don't the VirtualBox Guest Additions install properly on Fedora 23?
A: It seems that the VirtualBox Guest Additions don’t like the version of the X.Org Server software that comes with the Fedora 23 ISO. Before installing the additions, make sure to run:
sudo dnf update
This will get the latest version of X.Org Server (currently 1.18). After that, restart the VM. Then run:
sudo dnf install gcc kernel-devel-$(uname -r)
This command installs the gcc compiler and updated kernel headers, which the Guest Additions need in order to build themselves. $(uname -r) takes the output of the uname -r command, which returns the current kernel version number, and uses it to request to install the correct version for your system. Then try installing the Guest Additions again. You should see "Installing X.Org Server 1.18 modules [ OK ].” Restart the system again, and the full-screen feature should work.
