Am I correct to say I can't install it in a specific directory ?
I think this means relocatable in memory. It's been compiled to be
loaded at a specific memory address, so the loader has to place it
there. I'm not sure if the kernel accommodates this automatically or
not. I think it does. So you could install it in a different
directory, if you could get rpm to do so. But the install directory is
usually part of the binary rpm. i.e. if you run rpm -i [suse glibc
rpm], it will probably install it in the /usr heirarchy.
