How do I install AUR packages into a different directory?

Hey,

I wanted to install Unreal Engine on my HDD (Not my SSD, the boot drive.).

I tried playing around with the PKGBUILD but couldn't figure out how to do it so I would appreciate if anyone could help me out.

Thanks

Re: How do I install AUR packages into a different directory?

My first inclination is to ask what is it you are really trying to do.

To answer your question, we need to understand what is mounted where.  Can you post the output of lsblk -f along with your PKGBUILD ?

Edit: Oh, and welcome to the forums.

Installing things to ntfs is a terrible idea. It likely won't work anyway.

Re: How do I install AUR packages into a different directory?

Why is it such a terrible idea? Would a different file system have worked out?

If you aren't working with Windows, don't use NTFS. If you are installing AUR packages, install it to a non NTFS partition.

Re: How do I install AUR packages into a different directory?

Filesystems used on *nix systems support a basic set of permissions & attributes, NTFS uses a different set .

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_system_permissions and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_attribute have more info .

There could be parts of the system where the diferences may not be an issue, especially when used for data-only files .


Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.
Did you use the guided installer ? If yes, I can't help you.
