Re: rpm installation via the python api using a prefix



We package a physics experiment's s/w as rpms and normally manage it via apt-get for rpm. One of the reasons for the latter is that installing as non-root is one of our requirements. However, we would very much like to be able to use yum as it is the installation tool of our standard OS - RHEL and derived distributions, first of all, Scientific Linux.
So, having access to the rpm functionality of --prefix, --relocate via Python bindings (in some future release) would be great for us.

Many thanks,
Gegory

I would submit that if it is being supported in the command line rpm
application then it is not unreasonable to have it in the python bindings as
well.  Is there any place I can make a feature request that might help it be
considered for the next rpm release?

I wouldn't say planned, but it's a possibility. OTOH the relocation is
somewhat controversial feature to begin with, and there's been zero
demand for supporting it in the python bindings (until now).
