compiling from source - where to install
Hello all. New to Debian, and have a few questions. When installing
software from source: what is the official/suggested way of doing this in
Debian? Obviously, /usr/local is under my control according to the FHS.
But is there a suggested way of handling this on a Debian system? Also,
does it make a difference if there is a dpkg available for said software?
My first thought is to do a "./configure --prefix=/usr/local" but thought
I'd check with you Deb-Gurus first. :)
