Installing debs in ~user/ or /usr/local?
maybe it is a stupid question, but can debian packages be installed in other
places than / ?
I know that when the package is compiled the Makefile has a $DESTDIR
attribute, but is this preserved in the deb package?
This issue came up when i tried to convince someone that debian packages
are a good addition to tar.gz for distribution... but one argument he gave,
was the question if non-root users could install debian packages?
Is this possible?
