Installpkg truncates log paths, cripples installations?
If I try to install OpenOffice 3.* from the developers' builds' RPM's *converted* to TGZ (by rpm2tgz), the archives contain some files with fairly long paths.
The installpkg (and, possibly, updatepkg -- didn't try recently, so don't remember) *truncates* such paths at 80-something chars and *then* tries to install the result, effectively crippling the installation. Such truncation isn't reported by installpkg, AFAIK. I see that the installpkg utils are shell scripts, is there some shell limit in effect?
The example of truncated archive path follows (it's .xcu ini archive, but the .xc is actually installed):
The RPM installation of original RPM's completes without errors. The Slackware is 12.1, with some additional pkgs.
