Sun 3 xterminal debs?
Gidday all - I have a question regarding installing software from source as
opposed to .debs
It is obviously a better thing to use a deb package if available, but what
damage might I be causing if I install something from source? For example
I have installed sshd from source (on a work machine), because I could not
find a prepacked deb.
The reason the subject mentions sun 3/50s is that my home server will
change to debian from slackware (mumble 3) when I have some time to
concentrate on it. On the network I have an old green sun 3/50 which uses
tftp and xdm and so on - I see the potential for a lot of dependencies. Is
there a deb for such a situation?
Comments/advice/ridicule welcome :)
