What does rpm --relocate REALLY do?
Here's the deal, I'm trying to install Sybase's packages and the %$#@! thing wants to put itself under /opt/sybase-12.5
Well, that won't work for me (see my related post about how unhappy my system is after it got that full feeling on /), so I do this:
rpm -i --relocate /opt/sybase-12.5=/home/sybase/sybase-12.5 /mnt/cdrom/RPMS/sybase-common-18.104.22.168.i386.rpm
Well, the File Manager app shows the files landing in /home/sybase/sybase-12.5, but df shows that the space got eaten up from the / partition not from /home. Well, dang! Just what I didn't want. What am I missing here?
