It's not documented by ?loadDb, but providing an absolute path doesn't work, and shows an unusual error message.

> genes17 <- loadDb("/nb/dario/genes/gencode17.db")
Error in loadDb(file, dbType, dbPackage, ...) : 
  error in evaluating the argument 'dbType' in selecting a method for function 'loadDb': Error: argument "dbType" is missing, with no default     # Help file says this is optional.
> genes17 <- loadDb("gencode17.db")
