Description Matt Van Gundy 2004-04-16 23:01:40 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.6)

Description of problem:
rpm -qip subversion-1.0.1-1.i386.rpm on the package obtained from
rpmfind.net's Fedora Core Devel section states that it is relocateable
in the description section.  However, when I tried to rpm -Uvh
--prefix ~ subversion-1.0.1-1.i386.rpm I get "error: package
subversion is not relocateable".  A quick check of the Relocations
entry in the package info confirms this.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -qip subversion-1.0.1-1.i386.rpm
2. rpm -Uvh --prefix ~ subversion-1.0.1-1.i386.rpm

Actual Results:  warning: subversion-1.0.1-1.i386.rpm: V3 DSA
signature: NOKEY, key ID 30c9ecf8
error: package subversion is not relocateable

Expected Results:  Package should have installed in my home directory. :-)

It doesn't actually say that any more.  But there is an obscure rpm
i18n thing which means that sometimes you'll get the wrong
%description displayed, this happened to me too.  Try

unset LANG
rpm -qip subversion-1.0.1-1.i386.rpm

or maybe

LANG=C rpm -qip subversion-1.0.1-1.i386.rpm

I can't remember which works around it.
