Multiple Linux distros can be installed on the same machine. The format of executables should be the same for every one of them. So I want to use multiple distros on a single machine and have access to some applications like Skype, Chrome or Spotify from all. I don't want to waste time and disk space to install them on distros separately. I want to use only modern distros, like Ubuntu, Mint, Fedora, Solus, Manjaro, etc.
man hier expresses
/usr/local as a folder is where programs which are local to the site typically go. I can make a separate partition with the contents of
/usr/local and mount it on every distro. Please tell me if this is the appropriate folder.
After mounting the appropriate folder:
- what is required for executables to be shared among distros (permissions, UID, GID)?
- will it be possible to install a piece of software on one distro and run it on another?
- will upgrade of a package on one distro be visible on the other distros?
- will removal of the package be visible on other distros?
- should I mount more folders, like
- how about flatpak and Appimages?
