To be honest I don't want to put this into /bin, as it is an "add-on application" (see previous comment) and does not belong to /bin according to the file hierarchy standard (FHS). Feel free to add a symlink and/or edit PATH if you want to have it there, personally I don't feel comfortable with this.

@kbabioch, maybe just add a symlink to it? Consider adding line to package function: ln -s "/opt/MegaRAID/MegaCli/MegaCli" "${pkgdir}"/usr/bin/megacli

This is third-party software ("add-on application to use the terminology from "man 7 hier"). We only re-distribute it, but do not compile this for ourselves, so I think /opt is the right place for it. You can always add the path to your PATH environment variable, personally I don't want to do this for all users.

Is there a reason this gets installed into /opt/MegaRAID/MegaCli rather than /usr/bin like other apps? Seems /usr/bin and /usr/lib for the .so would be much more convenient.

Yes, this card is kind of legacy. I've removed the dependency on rpmextract, thanks for the feedback.

oh, older cards, then i say nothing

note: you can use bsdtar for extract the content of the rpm, no need rpmextract wrapper

sorry and greetings

Not sure what the official take from LSI / Avagotech is, but in my case storcli is not compatible with my Dell Perc 6i card, so I'm still in need of megacli.

megacli is not superseeded by storcli?
