Quick question, I am getting the rpmlint warning
"/opt may not be used by a
SUSE. It is reserved for 3rd party packagers". I am obviously not SUSE, but
how can I specify the vendor?
The warning is to mean:
"Since you are building for $distro, adhere to $distro's policies."
(And by choosing the openSUSE build tools, you chose to build for
$distro rather than a "generic" target.)
Most if not all of the contemporary distributions have no provision for
anything in /opt, because they are just fine with /usr.
OpenSUSE build tools allow me to build to pretty much any target, so it's not
More than that, the error clearly states that "it is reserved for 3rd party
packagers", which is good definition of me in this situation.
And of course what I'm trying to build fits under /opt by FHS definition, and
does not really fit under /usr by the same definition.
