Attempting to install package below from SUSE 9 cds, Yast says:

kdelibs3-devel-3.1.4-24.i586.rpm failed
rpm output:
error: unpacking of archive failed on file /etc/opt/kde3/
common_options;40b9edf5: cpio: mkdir failed - Permission denied.

In /etc the file kde3rc contains the following:


I also get "/etc/opt/kde3: Permission denied" when doing updatedb.

I don't have an /etc/opt/kde3, or at least I can't see it...

jake@linux:~> ls -ald /etc/opt
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 96 2004-04-30 19:48 /etc/opt
jake@linux:~> cd /etc/opt
jake@linux:/etc/opt> ls
/bin/ls: kde3: Permission denied
jake@linux:/etc/opt> sux
linux:/etc/opt # ls
/bin/ls: kde3: Permission denied
. .. gnome

Can anybody help explain this to me?
