Question How to install an RPM to a specific Directory


Hello, I am installing Fluxbox WM, and the website says it needs to be installed in /usr/bin/

I know how to install an rpm # rpm -ivh package.rpm


but how can I have it install in the /usr/bin/ folder

Can you give me exactly what I need to write (more or less)

Thanks!

RPMs are usually packaged so that the binaries install into default locations, such as /usr/bin/
