This is why smart people make /home, /opt, and /local to be separate filesystems (or at least make /local a symbolic link to something like /home/local and/or /opt to be a symbolic link to /home/opt.) This should be the DEFAULT set-up for a new installation, because the uninitiated has absolutely no idea that having /home, /local and /opt on the root filesystem is setting them up for major headaches when they want to install the system.
AFAIK /home is by default on a different partition. The other ones are rather special for people installing a lots of additional software.
In fact, in the install, it would be REALLY super-nice if I could specify the creation of any symbolic links and target directories before ANY packages are installed.
This sounds like super-expert stuff. You can do it with add-on product, but I don't think this will be ever implemented.
No, I doubt it ever will be... it's a "wish list" item.
BTW, what "add-on product" is going to do this in the middle of installation?
For example, I might not want /var/fonts on the /var partition... but would instead, prefer to put it in some place like /opt/fonts or /local/fonts )
Right now, it involves doing the install, then going into single user mode, moving the fonts directory and creating the symbolic link from /var/fonts to /local/fonts...
Not much of a problem on all IDE systems, but when you're dealing with SCSI disks, partition size can still be a factor.
What you can do is to add additional steps during the installation to do whatever you need to do.
You can do it easily for autoyast, for normal install,you need to create an add-on product with a workflow.
