(Solved) RPM: installing package openssl-0.9.7d-2 needs 10Mb on the /opt filesystem ?

As described I enter:
"rpm -Uhv openssl-0.9.7d-2.aix5.1.ppc.rpm"
then it sais:
"installing package openssl-0.9.7d-2 needs 10Mb on the /opt filesystem" ?

There are more then 10MB left and root can write, so what's the problem ?

/opt is not part of the root filesystem ... root is hd4, /opt is hd10opt

chfs -a size=+20480 /opt
