Subject: [dpdk-web] [PATCH] quick-start: use /dev/hugepages instead of /mnt/huge
Date: Wed, 24 Jun 2020 09:34:45 -0700
Message-ID: <20200624163445.13720-1-stephen@networkplumber.org> (raw)

The standard mount location for hugepages on most Linux distributions
is /dev/hugepages. Make the example safe, so that if hugepages are
already mounted nothing needs to be done.
