Comment 1 Eugene Kanter 2013-09-02 05:17:14 MSD
false alarm. /home filesystem was nfs mounted.
however it seems that there must be a better place for archives location, please consider /var
Comment 2 Eugene Kanter 2013-09-14 23:54:01 MSD
Archives folder must be made customizable during initial configuration.
Found it hardcoded:

# rpm -qa | grep mmc | xargs rpm -ql | xargs grep -l /home/arc

in case where /home is handled by an automounter having hardcoded

destpath = /home/archives

is very inconvenient.
