Since kpackage is no longer supported on KDE4.4 and I sometime install packages from outside the repositories (such as my Brother printer driver), I thought I would create a local repository for managing outside rpms.
Following the directions in this thread
, I installed the pkgutils and pkgutils-kde4 packages.
I then created a directory ~/rpm_cache
Using Dolphin, I changed to this directory and opened a terminal window from within Dolphin. IIRC, the path correctly indicated that I was in the ~/rpm_cache directory
I then ran the mkrepo script but did NOT read closely and typed yes when prompted. Instead of using ~/rpm_cache as the root directory for setting up the paths, ~/ was used instead and a /src and /tmp directories were created.
This is not what I wanted and further clutters my home directory.
Deleting /src was easy. Right click-delete and it's gone.
The ~/tmp directory is proving much more difficult to banish.
No matter what I try, when I delete the /tmp directory it is automatically recreated.
I have tried:
-deleting as user from within Dolphin
-deleting as root from within Dolphin
-deteting as root from within Konq
There seems to be a script somewhere that is forcing the existence of this directory.
How do I clean up my machine?
I still would like to have a local repository for rpms that I need to install locally, but at a location of my choosing, not that of this script.
Help cleaning up my install is greatly appreciated!
