Urpmi location

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to install an urpmi package to a specific location (f.e. /tmp/mychroot) ?

A urpmi package is actually an rpm.

 

You can just goto the ftp download site and get the specific package. Then you can install it just like any other rpm. Though most apps need to have stuff in partitcular places, depending on the app you might be able to specify where you want it.

 

 

Installing an rpm sometimes tells you you need anouther rpm to make it work. This second rpm is a dependancy. You'll have to install those also. The utility app urpmi automaticly(normally) takes care of getting and installing the dependancies for you.

The MCC is just a GUI front end for urpmi that gives you most of the ability of the cli.
