    Installation of sysvinit-2.87-1.dsf.el6.src.rpm


    Hi All,

    How can I find the sysvinit-2.87-1.dsf.el6.src.rpm installed location.

    I use the command rpm -ivh sysvinit-2.87-1.dsf.el6.src.rpm for installing the package.

    which will be the default installation location for sysvinit-2.87-1.dsf.el6.src.rpm

    Regards,
    ShibuThomas

    src.rpm on a redhat box should be in /usr/src/redhat

    The folder you mentioneed is not available in my distribution(RHEL 6.0).
    The only folders avaliable under /usr/src are
    1)debug
    2) kernel

    Out of curiosity, I just installed a rh6 VM.

    You are right, src.rpms are no longer extracted to /usr/src/redhat.
    They are now in ~/rpmbuild
    ie: each user can have his/her own specfiles/sources/etc
