Description Valent Turkovic 2008-01-24 10:19:14 EST
Description of problem:

I make my partition 8GB and that is much more than I really need even with fully
loaded fedora. Even with using 3rd party repositories I use around 5GB so there
is enough space for system and temp files.

Revisor uses by default /tmp and /var/tmp folders that I have on my root
partition. I can make symlinks so that revisor files are actually on a different
partition, but that is a kludge.

There should be a options, as there is where to build revisors images, for
choosing where to store temporary files that revisors makes while building
respins. I have other partition that have free space and can be used to build
respins but my root isn't designed with revisor in mind.

Use working_directory (/var/tmp is default) and destination_directory
(/srv/revisor/<model-name> is default) in your configuration file, or use
--working-directory and --destination-directory from the CLI. The GUI has an
entry for the destination directory in the Revisor Configuration screen.

RFE is for revisor - can you please add a gui feature so users can change
working directory if they wish?
