Description jmbastia 1999-05-08 16:03:59 EDT
When attemption to use the --prefix option with rpm in
RedHat Linux 6.0, it reports that only one prefix option may
be used, even if only one option is used.  For example:

# rpm -ivh --prefix /opt/zip zip-2.1-8.i386.rpm
rpm: only one of --prefix or --relocate may be used
Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1999-05-09 15:42:59 EDT
You can work around this problem by using --relocate. Assuming
that the package wants to install in /usr and you wish to install
in /opt/zip, the command would be

	rpm -ivh --relocate /usr=/opt/zip zip-2.1.8.i386.rpm
Comment 2 Erik Troan 1999-06-01 15:31:59 EDT
fixed in rpm 3.0.1
