I want to specify the install path by using zypper, but I didn't find an appropriate argument when I typed the command zypper -h.

Can anyone help me or tell me?

NOTE: My distribution is OpenSuSE 11.2.


First off, OpenSuSE 11.2 has been EOL'd so you probably want to upgrade.

However, from the man page you can change the root directory with -R /path/to/new/root.

This means if you do the following:

zypper in foo

And foo lives in /bin/ then:

zypper -R /usr/local/ in foo

Will put foo in /usr/local/bin/
