Re: [augeas-devel] Associating lenses with files in other locations



Yes, both were typos.  No, nothing in /augeas//error.  I did find that useful when there was an error parsing a my.cnf in the right location earlier.  Like I said, it works perfectly find with files in the proper location.  It's just the --root doesn't seem to work.

I also need to determine how to associate lenses with alternate locations for other reasons, so I'm willing to work around --root not working if I can do the lense association better.
