alter the location of the package installtion - feldmaus - 09-21-2006

Hi,

I am not sure whether this is possible.
Is there a possibility to alter the Installation Location from the *.package?


- thelusiv - 09-21-2006

Yes, basically:
Code:
./vdrift-version.package --prefix /usr/local
Here /usr/local is an example location. The default prefix is /usr so change that appropriately. Also if you run the .package file and when it asks for your root password, don't give it, then it will instaill in ~/.local instead of /usr.

Is that also possible with the package Command in the Shell?

bye Markus

I would think so. I haven't got it installed at the moment because I've just reinstalled my OS and would like to move to autopackage SVN instead of the plain version. Try
Code:
package --help
and see if that tells you anything.
