package information file
defines disk space requirements for the target environment
beyond that which is used by objects defined in
file--for example, files that will
be dynamically created at installation time.
It should define the maximum
amount of additional space that a package will require.
The generic format of a line in this file is:
pathname blocks inodes
Definitions for each field are as follows:
Numbers of blocks or inodes can be negative to indicate that the package
will ultimately (after processing by scripts, and so on) take up less space than
the installation tool would calculate.
Names a directory in which there are objects that will require additional
The pathname can be the mount point for a filesystem.
Pathnames that do not begin with a slash (/) indicate relocatable directories.
Defines the number of 512-byte disk blocks required for
installation of the files and
directory entries contained in the pathname.
(Do not include filesystem dependent disk usage.)
Defines the number of inodes required for installation of the files and
directory entries contained in pathname.
Here is an example of this file:
# extra space required by config data which is
# dynamically loaded onto the system
data 500 1
