db2 fixpak overwriting symbolic link

P: n/a
Hi All,
on db2 v8.1 for linux 32 bit redhat 7.3, when
installing fixpak6,it's overwriting the symbolic link
that I defined for the install directory, and proceeding
to fill up my root partition.

As far as I can tell, the only command in the
../installFixPak
that might do it is the rpm itself...ideas?
Thanks

Make /opt/IBM or /opt/IBM/db2 the soft link to /database. Then the
software will be installed in /database/db2/V8.1 or /database/V8.1,
respectively.
